At the beginning of the testing session, a series of 20 bird calls will be played for students. Each call is played for about 15-20 seconds, before moving on to the next call.
The audio says "Bird call number 1", and then it plays. And so on. The total time for bird calls is less than 7 minutes.
While the bird calls are being played, students may also work on answering questions in the rest of the test.
This is not a station-based event this year. Each team works from their own copy of the test.
Yes, they may mark on the test materials.
However, it may be faster to mark their answer directly on the ZipGrade form.
Also, we are planning to reuse at least some of the test materials to save printing costs. We will appreciate it if some of the teams don't mark on their test materials.
Questions may be asked about any of the birds in the book and also from information from the introduction sections.
The rules do not specify a size limit. Remember that it cannot have loose pages. There is probably a practical limit on how big it can be or should be.
