38 students earn perfect scores; 53 students score 4 out of 5!
In December, our students competed in the second meet of the MOEMS Division E contest with great success. This year we fielded seven teams: four Grade 2-4 teams, two Grade 5 teams, and one Grade 6 team. Students within each grade group are placed on a team based on the first letter of their first name, so that the teams are roughly the same in strength.
Usually, the expected score after two meets for the teams on target for the top team award is about 80-84 points out of 100 possible maximum, while for the teams on target for the top team award among Grade 4 teams is about 70 points. After two meets, the team standings are as follows:
- Grade 6 Team earned 90 points.
- Grade 5 Team A-L earned 89 points.
- Grade 5 Team M-Z earned 93 points.
- Grade 2-4 Team A-Ce earned 78 points
- Grade 2-4 Team Ch-E earned 78 points.
- Grade 2-4 Team J-Ni earned 82 points.
- Grade 2-4 Team No-Z earned 82 points.
All our teams are on track for top team awards in their age groups!
Individually, students averaged 3.05 out of 5, compared to 1.68 national average! That shows that this was an incredibly challenging contest for all students, and our students still scored an average 1.37 points higher than the national average. Here are the averages by grade on our team compared with the national averages (the difference is shown in parenthesis):
- Grade <= 3: 2.46 vs 1.33 (+1.13)
- Grade 4: 2.91 vs 1.38 (+1.53)
- Grade 5: 3.30 vs 1.76 (+1.54)
- Grade 6: 3.65 vs 1.94 (+1.71)
