2015-16 WordMasters Challenge™ 
Meet #2 Results

 

As usual, multiple school delays and closings in some parts of the country impacted several of our participating teams and their ability to adequately prepare for the Meet #2 Challenge test. Unfortunately, we have very little flexibility when it comes to score submission deadlines as Meet #3 follows closely on the heels of Meet #2 and cumulative results must be posted in early May to accommodate our teams who finish their school years by mid-May.  If you find that your school is typically affected by winter weather and school calendar interruptions, keep in mind that Meet #2 word lists are available in early December to allow you and your students to get a head start.

In the BLUE DIVISION, median team scores were comparable to Meet #1 results with the exception of 5B and 7B.  In each of these divisions, the median team score was approximately 20 points lower than the previous meet.  The 5B test proved to be particularly challenging, and only 7 fifth graders nationwide earned a perfect score of 20.

In the GOLD DIVISION of the WordMasters Challenge™, Meet #2 results were very comparable to Meet #1 except for 5B (median team score drop of 14 points) and 8B (median team score increase of 14 points).  These variances typically reflect the relative difficulty of individual tests.  

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.  If you are looking for an estimate of the number of students competing in each division, go to the Statistics Chart in the "Top Ten by Division" report (accessible through the View Reports page on your Dashboard).  The "Total" listed in the chart is the number of scores reported for each division.  Because not all teams report their scores and some only report their top scores, we estimate that the actual total number of students participating in each Challenge is roughly three times the number of reported scores. For example, we estimate that approximately 19,500 third graders took the 3B Challenge (based on 6,482 reported scores).

Congratulations to the following Outstanding Teams in the Blue Division:
