2014-15 WordMasters Challenge™ 
Meet #1 Results

 

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the first meet of the 2014-15 WordMasters Challenge™, especially to those representing the Top Ten schools in each division listed below.   

Team Leaders, please reassure your students that many participants who found the first meet somewhat daunting usually see 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.

In the BLUE DIVISION, many of our newest WordMasters performed extremely well in their first competition! In Grade 3, the median team score reported was 159 -- significantly higher than Meet #1 of previous years.  In addition, 75 third graders earned a perfect score of 20, while another 198 scored 19 points and 346 received an 18.  The results were even stronger in the fourth grade:  100 perfect scores, 229 scores of 19 and another 385 scores of 18. Excellent start, 3B and 4B teams!  In contrast, the 7B Challenge Test proved to be exceptionally difficult, with a median reported team score of 116, and fewer than ten students nationwide scoring 19 or 20 points.  

In the GOLD DIVISION of the WordMasters Challenge™, the median team score for most grades was slightly lower than Meet #1 results from last year.  Most likely, this trend reflects the fact that many of our schools are stepping up to the greater challenges posed by the GOLD DIVISION.  Keep up the good work!  A special shout-out to the 76 students in the entire nation that earned a perfect score of 20 in the GOLD DIVISION.

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.  Please keep in mind that many children are participating in their first WordMasters Challenge™ and should not be discouraged by a low score.  As always, students scoring 18 or better should be extremely proud of their achievement.
