2020 SCOP MS 10

The SCOP MS 10 set will be available for mirroring from 12 January 2019 through April 2020. This set is based on the SCOP Novice 10 set; some of the questions will be replaced, but many of them will be edited versions of our Novice questions. Previous years' questions are available on our website and posted in the archive.

The set includes ten rounds of 20/20 (tossups/bonuses) and half-packet of 10/10 replacement questions. Tossups are powermarked. Bonuses have three parts, which are designed to be read one part at a time. If you are planning to use this set in a non-standard format (e.g. if you're planning to run your tournament in timed format or with more than two teams per room, or if you want to use local match format that only uses bonuses in the second half, etc.), you must confirm this with me prior to receiving the set or incur financial penalties.

SCOP MS will use the following distribution per round:

5/5 Science (including 1/1 non-computational math)
4/4 Literature (including up to 1 question per round in children's or young adult literature)
4/4 History and Government
2/2 Religion and Mythology
2/2 Fine Arts
1/1 Geography
1/1 Current Events/Social Science/Philosophy
1/1 Pop Culture

The mirror fee is $8 per team (including house teams). We offer a $1/team discount for complete statistics (in SQBS or Neg5 format with complete individual statistics and with round report enabled) posted promptly after your tournament. There is an additional discount of $2/team if you choose to scan and e-mail (or snail-mail) your raw scoresheets to me for the calculation of conversion statistics by topic. If your program is in need of further discounts, especially if you're in a developing circuit, feel free to inquire about lowering your mirror fee further. This set is not available for mirroring to high school teams.

Unlike our Novice-level set, the MS set is available to mirror in Illinois.

Prospective mirror hosts, or anyone with questions about the Novice or Middle School sets, may contact me at [email protected].

Coolio. I'll get that in my records and on the IHSSBCA calendar.

Due to widespread cancellations in light of COVID-19, the Novice version of the set will have a final online mirror on April 19. Both sets will be posted to the archive soon after. Thanks to everyone who used SCOP this year!
