Re: Clarification on <G9>
Scoring will work as following:
A participant will run their code using the special Summer of Learning Challenge VEX Toss Up Virtual World. At the end of the run, the student will be given the option to upload their score via their CS2N account. Once the contest is over, the highest scores will be eligible for prizes (number of prizes yet to be determined).
The ranking goes by highest score. If two scores are tied, the tiebreaker is determined by the amount of time to achieve that score (using the Internal Timer, which submits the timing data with the rest of the scoring data). If two scores are tied on both score and time, the tiebreaker will be determined by which player used the Robot Reset Button the least amount of times during their run. If two scores have the same score, the same total time to complete the run, and the same amount of Robot Reset Button usage, then the tiebreaker will be determined by who submitted their code to CS2N first.
We will update the competition's CS2N page if there are any changes to the scoring/tiebreaking system before the competition starts, so keep an eye on it. Also, Players who are eligible for prizes will need to submit their code for review before the prizes are awarded.
