What is the team about: The Academic Quiz Team is a group of students that excel in areas ranging from Fine Arts to World Literature to Physical Science. They compete against other schools throughout the CMAC and will compete in the ECC next year.
What do they do to prepare: They practice Mondays and Thursdays throughout the season and use practice questions from previous matches.
How is the competition Judged: There are three rounds:
- Alphabet Round: A five minute period where the students must work together to answer 20 questions starting with the letter of the match. All answers in this round start with that letter.
- Category Round: This is the longest round and the most points are awarded for this round. Each team will be asked one question in 10 different categories along with a toss-up that goes to the quickest correct answer from a team.
- Lightning Round: This is the final round and has twenty questions that require speed. Who ever ends this round with the most points wins the match.
How often do they compete: They compete once or twice a week throughout the season. Two matches per competition day.
