The Rules of the Finance Challenge ONLINE!
It's quite simple, really!
Simply do the following:
1. Register as a teacher.
2. Once you have registered as a teacher, you can begin to create student teams of 3-4 students in one of two divisions:
- Middle School- For 6th-8th grade students
- High School- For 9th-12th grade students
3. After creating the teams you will be given unique access codes for each student. Distribute these access codes to your students when they are ready to take the Challenge.
The Finance Challenge ONLINE! is October 9-20, 2017; December 5-16, 2017, & March 5-23, 2018. Once the competition begins, students can enter the Challenge website and complete a 30 question rapid fire exam consisting of personal finance questions. Each student will be given 35 minutes but all team members must complete the exam within 3 hours.
Scoring: the sum of the top three individual scores on each team make up the team score. Scoring on individual tests are as follows:
- +10 points for each correct answer
- -5 points for each incorrect answer
- 0 points for each unanswered question
All high school and middle school students are eligible to participate in student teams of 3-4 coached by their teacher.
***Rules of the State Finance Challenge will be shared with participating teachers when students advance to the state competition.***
