Competition Rules Test

This year we decided to make up a "Rules Test" to help our students brush up on the most important rules in this year's game. I thought the CD community might be able to benefit from it, mentors and students alike.

The test is intended to be very challenging and actually getting a good score should take a good deal of studying. It focuses on rules and game play mechanics that are important to the drive team so I left out anything about the dimensions of the field and some of the robot design requirements.

You can find the test here!

Please leave any feedback you might have, I would love to see what you guys think about it. So far our highest score is from a student (61%), maybe someone around here can beat that

Re: Competition Rules Test

Yeah I do, though I don't want to make it public just yet. Some of our students are still re-taking it and trying to improve their scores.

I can PM it to you if you want though? I'm interested to see if I made any mistakes.

Re: Competition Rules Test

I just got 100%

My answer for #4:
a) hold up the placard
b) bang on the glass
c) get the crowd to yell, 'Ball, ball, ball!'

And hey guys, if you want the answer key, PM Brian and he can reply. Don't make him do all the work to PM you.

Re: Competition Rules Test

Uh oh, looks like one of the answers may have been wrong on the Key.
In question 21 whether or not "Intentionally Ramming at high speed" is a foul may have been misinterpreted originally. I thought one thing but another person here on CD corrected me and it appears that what he said matches the manual.

Sorry guys, I switched the answer. (though I'm still not 100% convinced )
