Online Tournaments

All 5 levels are on one results link. There is a tab at the bottom of the page that will open the page for the different levels.

Online tournaments are available for four different grade levels: Primary, grades 3 & 4, Elementary, grades 5 & 6, Mid Level, grades 7 & 8, and High School, grades 9 through 12.

Each grade level will have five separate subject area tournaments: language arts, science, humanities, mathematics and social studies.

The subject level tournaments will be due at different times during the year. The order of presentation, test opening date, test due date and final results dates are all listed to the right. There will be one week between the due date and the final results date. This week will serve as a grace period for late submission.

I've enrolled, now what?

Once your team is enrolled the coach will receive a username and password which will allow both the coach and the team access to the testing site. All usernames have @oaac at the end. Passwords are numerical ONLY

OAAC uses ALCA's Arch Platform for online tournaments. Once the username and password are received, teams will have access to the practice tests.

1. Team make-up may change for each tournament.

2. No limit on team size.

3. Students compete at their home site.

4. Teachers/Coaches are not to assist students in determining the answer to a question.

5. Students work as a team to answer the multiple choice, true/false and matching questions. The team determines the answer and one person will key in "A", "B", "C", or "D" or click on the choice.

6. Unless otherwise noted in the instructions no outside references, assistance or calculators will be allowed.

7. Each tournament is timed. They are usually 50 minutes in length. The amount of time will be stated on the opening screen of each tournament.  Most tournaments will allow you to log out then return to finish the remaining questions.

8. At the conclusion of the tournament the questions will be displayed with both your answer and the answer scored as correct.  The program will give the score and post the score in the online grade book. Only the score for the logged in team will display in the grade book.

9. Total results and team ranking will be listed on the results pages for each grade level. See the links on the left.

10. There are practice tests. Practice tests are labeled PRACTICE TEST. The test you will be taking for a score does NOT say practice test. It will say 2016-17 "Grade Level" "Subject Area" Tournament.

9.  Once the tournament results and ranking are posted (the week-end after the due date), teams will have 5 days to check the posting.  After 5 days the results become official (final).

11. If a team missed the turn-in deadline they may still take a tournament test for a score. The late score will not affect the results of the posted tournament.  The late score will not change the posted results of the tournament.  The late score will be added to the team totals for sweepstakes consideration.

Scoring

12.  'Regular' questions are worth 1-5 points each.

13. Writers have the option to weight questions they consider to include more difficult material or a more challenging question style. You will be able to see the points given to each question when you review the questions at the end of the tournament.

Ties

14.  All ties for champion or runner-up placing will be broken. 

a. Each writer has pre-selected 5 - 10 questions in each tournament as tie breakers.  The team with the most pre-selected questions correct will be the 'winning' team. No additional points will be added (to keep sweepstakes on a level field).

b. If the score is still tied after the tie breaker questions are reviewed the team completing the test in the least amount of time will be the winning team.

Sweepstakes

15. The team with the highest cumulative score for each level will be awarded the Sweepstakes Champion trophy.

a. Subject areas with fewer questions (fewer points) will be figured into the Sweepstakes total using a formula to bring all subject areas to the same weight.
