Meet #1 Challenge Tests and Answer Keys available for download!

Posted by

The Challenge Tests and Answer Keys for Meet #1 are now available for download through your Dashboard.  If you have not already done so, please schedule your meet for any 20-minute period between now and December 7th.  You can click here or go to Team Leader Instructions for Meet #1 under the "What's Happening" box on our homepage for detailed instructions regarding administration of the Challenge Test.

After you have administered and scored the tests, you can input your students' scores online.  Please follow these instructions:

  1. If you have not already created individual student records, click on "Manage Teams & Students" from your Dashboard.
  2. Click on a team in the "Teams" list in the left-hand column.  At the bottom of the "Team Details" box, you will see a green circle with a "+" sign and "Add Student". Click here and enter the first and last name of the student for whom you wish to submit a score, then click "Save".  Repeat this process for all students for whom you are reporting scores.
  3. You can enter scores for as many students as you would like with our new scoring system.  Please be sure to create a record for any student you want to track for all three meets (i.e., you are no longer limited to reporting only the top ten scores); this will enable the system to calculate cumulative scores for an individual student at the conclusion of the 2013-14 WordMasters Challenge™.
  4. Once your students have been added to your team, return to your Dashboard and click on "Submit Scores". Select your team from the "Teams" column.
  5. Click on a student's name and enter the number of correct responses (0-20) in the box and hit enter.  You can edit scores until the Score Submission Deadline (December 13th).
  6. When you have finished entering scores, you can click on "EMAIL RESULTS" if you would like to send a copy of the team's scores to anyone (or yourself!).
  7. Important Note:  You will NOT be able to enter or edit scores after the Score Submission Deadline of December 13th.  Please schedule your Challenge Meet accordingly.  The system will automatically calculate team scores and standings at midnight on 12/13/13, so we will not be able to accept any late scores.

That's all there is to it!  Results for Challenge Meet #1 will be posted on the website by December 27th.  You can begin preparing for Meet #2 as early as December 9th, when the Meet #2 Word Lists will become available for download through your Dashboard.

We continue to post new templates on our Teacher Tools page and the great ideas you have shared with us in our Idea Gallery.  Keep them coming!

Good luck on your first Challenge Meet!

Team Leader Instructions for Website Upgrades

Posted by



 

 
WordMasters, LLC
Website Upgrades
& Instructions

 

Welcome back to school and to the 2013-14 WordMasters Challenge™!  Now in our 27th year, we are pleased to announce several system upgrades that will make your participation in the competition easier and more convenient:

  • Access and download the WordMasters Challenge™ materials you have ordered directly through our website at any time.  

  • Assign a separate Team Leader to each team you enroll.

  • Create individual student records (no limit) to record scores and automatically calculate cumulative scores after third meet.

  • View and print reports containing data you have entered for your school.

This weekend, we migrated all of our customer data to the new system.  If you have already created an account linked to your email address, you will be able to use your existing password to log in and access your DASHBOARD.  Simply go to our website (http://www.wordmasterschallenge.com) and click on “LOGIN” in the top right corner of our homepage. If you cannot remember your password, try clicking on “Forgot your password?”  If you registered without creating an account, you should be able to log in using your four-digit school number as a password.  (Your school number appears on the invoice/sales receipt you received via email.)

Once you log in to our website, you will be directed automatically to your personal DASHBOARD page.  From here, you can choose from several options:

  • Manage Teams & Students:  Assign a Team Leader for each team you have enrolled and confirm contact information.  Create individual student records (you can do this now or wait until it’s time to submit Challenge scores).

  • Download Materials: For each team you have enrolled, the corresponding Meet #1 Word List will be available for download beginning October 1st.  (See the Challenge Schedule posted under the RESOURCES tab at our website for a complete calendar of important dates related to the 2013-14 WordMasters Challenge™.)

  • Submit Scores:  Use this link when it is time to submit student scores.  Now you can enter as many scores as you would like; our system will automatically calculate your team score so no need to worry about ties for tenth place!  Since each student’s score is tied to a unique student record, the system will also be able to automatically calculate cumulative individual and team scores at the end of the year.

  • View Reports:  This area is still under construction but will be completed before Meet #1 results are available.  You will be able to view and print reports of your students’ scores as well as overall team results and perfect score listings.

We ask you to be patient as we transition to the new system.  It may take a few days for us to confirm that all orders for the 2013-14 WordMasters Challenge™ have been successfully transferred. Remember, the Meet #1 word lists are not available for download until Tuesday, October 1st.

While you are at our website, be sure to check out the newly updated Teacher Tools page as well as our Idea Gallery for ways to prepare your students for the upcoming meets.  Please send us your ideas so we can share them on the website.

Looking forward to another great year of WordMasters!
