2012-13 WordMasters Challenge 
Meet #1 Results

 

Although Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath impacted many of our participating schools, we were pleased by the number of teams that submitted their scores before leaving for their holiday break.  There was a bit of confusion with the online score reporting form, but that is to be expected whenever you introduce something new.  As a reminder, you should only enter the top ten scores (listing ties for 10th place in the Comments section) for each team you have enrolled.  For example, if your school signed up one 3B team but you have four third grade classrooms that participate in the WordMasters Challenge, you should be combining their scores and submitting only the top ten overall.  Adherence to this procedure will greatly speed up our ability to analyze the scores and post the results promptly.  Thank you!

We had many schools participating in the WordMasters Challenge for the first time this year, and want to assure teachers and students alike that success increases along with familiarity with the program.  Most of the highest-scoring teams listed below are from schools who have participated for several years.  Also, students who found the first meet somewhat daunting usually find that their scores improve in Meets #2 and #3 as they have a clearer expectation of the test content and how to prepare effectively.  The important thing to remember is that your goal should be individual and team improvement over time.

Please be sure to examine the charts that follow the lists of Outstanding Teams, which are the best tools to use in assessing your own students' achievements.  

Congratulations to the following Outstanding Teams in the Blue Division:
