These 5 topics will not be included in the scope of the Code Ninjas event:
- Object-oriented programming
- I/O processing
- Exception handling
Part 2 of the Code Ninjas event will not involve students writing code, or using a computer interface.
The scope of Part 2 will still be focused on questions related to the Java programming language.
Questions will be asked in a multiple choice format, and students will record their answers on a ZipGrade form.
Accordingly, the grading rubric which refers to Accuracy, Efficiency and Readability no longer applies. Each question will have one best answer.
Students will be provided scrap paper. However, all answers must be recorded on the ZipGrade form. Markings on the scrap paper will not be graded. All paper must be returned before leaving the room.
Yes, paper will be provided.
They will be required to turn in that scrap paper with the test.
Only students who are formally registered as a team member may participate in this "Demonstration" event. Each team is limited to a maximum of 16 students.
A Demonstration Event in our tournament has these characteristics:
- It is a competitive event; students may win an event place medal.
- The rank score from the event does not contribute to the team total; thus it is not a required event.
- Similarly, a team will not be penalized for not participating
- Only students from a registered team may participate.
