### Grid Ins

You will have 12 minutes for 10 questions

You will not lost points for wrong answers OR unanswered questions in this section

• It is recommended, through not required, that you write your answer in the boxes at the top of the columns. However, you will receive credit only for darkening in ovals correctly.

• Grid only one answer to a question, even though some problems may have more than one correct answer.

• Darken no more than one oval per column.

• Mixed numbers cannot be gridded. For example: the number must be gridded as 1.25 or 5/4 (if it is gridded as 1¼, it will be interpreted as 11/4 , not 1¼).

• Decimal accuracy: Decimal answers must be entered as accurately as possible. For example, if you obtain an answer such as 0.1666. . ., you should record the result as .166 or .167. Less accurate values such as .16 or .17 are not acceptable.

• Your answer must have at most 4 characters, including the decimal point or fraction bar.

• The grid cannot accommodate negative numbers, mixed numbers, or numbers greater than 9,999.

• A fractional number with 4 digits won't fit.

• Mixed numbers must be changed to decimals or fractions before you grid.

• Decimals must be as complete as possible (for long or repeating decimals, use as many columns as possible) but do not have to be rounded up for accuracy's sake.

• Many questions may have more than one correct answer, and there may be many ways to fill in the grid correctly (just choose a single safe one).

• You will only get credit for filling in the ovals correctly—if you fill in two ovals in the same column, the computer reads this as an omission.

• Count how many you have correct and write it on top of your page

• Ex: 10 correct

• Count how many you have incorrect and write it on top of your page

• Ex: 5 incorrect

• Take the incorrect number and multiply it by .25

• Ex: 5 * .25 = 1.25 points

• Now subtract your incorrect points from your correct number to get your total, circle that number

• Ex: 10-1.25 = 8.75 points

• Now take the multiple choice total points (circled) and multiply it by 2.2

• Ex: 8.75 * 2.2 = 19.25 multiple choice

• Add the total points from the Grid-Ins to the multiple choice to get your raw score, circle it

• Ex: 19.25 + 5 = 24.25 Raw Score
