The Great Auk (Fall 2008 edition)

Post by the return of AHAN »

Post your scores here.

I'll start, since we did ours today (staff meetings on Wednesdays).
Barrington Middle School, Station Campus ... 1588 pts, 186 correct, 20 2nd chance

This was a bit of a [redacted] as our goal was to top the best Illinois middle school score last Spring of 1604. I thought they were going to do it, but we faded near the end as half the team moseyed out the door when it was time for the activity buses to leave.
[emoticon redacted]

EDIT 12/4/08: comments about 1588 being disappointing redacted! :-D

We did it today. It was pretty frustrating. The last time I actually learned grammar in school was 5th grade. This was the first time that SSA has ever done KMO, so I doubt that we performed up to our potential, but it doesn't really matter.
