“The time has come,” the Meta said,
“To speak of many things;
Of Challenges, of brand new tags
Of S.E. shirts as bling.
And why some lesson didn’t work
And making worksheets zing.”
- With Apologies to Lewis Carroll
Indeed, the time has come! Our first question challenge, in case you haven’t figured it out yet, is ???-review tagged questions. There are already two questions that exist that I created as models.
Here are the rules for questions:
- The questions must be posted between 0:00, 7/14 and 23:59, 7/24 (UTC). Any questions posted before the start of 7/14 or after 7/24 will not qualify. Edits made between the close of the day on 7/24 and the final judging may disqualify the question.
- The question must be tagged with curriculum-review, lesson-review, or materials-review to be considered.
- Every question asked with the appropriate tag will automatically be entered. However, after you post your question, there are two additional steps that would help the contest to stay organized. You should post this comment to your question:
*This question has been entered into [the -review question contest](https://cseducators.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/210/topic-challenge-01-the-review-spew).*You should also create an answer right here in this very meta with a link to your question.
It is a little easier for an answer to get considered:
- Any top-voted or accepted answer posted to a properly entered question before the close of the contest will automatically be given consideration. Edits made between the close of the day on 7/24 and the final judging may disqualify the answer.
- That is all.
Now, as for the judging criteria for questions:
- 10 points per upvote on the question itself.
- 2 points per answer that is created, and 2 points per upvote on any answer. *So, if an answer is created that gets 3 upvotes, it will be worth 8 points to a question’s overall score). Self-answers will not earn the question points, but may still gain upvote points in this category.
- Each judge may award up to 25 points based on how much of an exemplar the question is for the tag, and up to 5 additional points for any other considerations (such as great writing, etc).
Judging criteria for answers:
- 10 points per upvote on the answer itself.
- 15 points if the answer is accepted.
- Each judge may assign up to 5 additional points each for:
- Whether the answer strictly answers the question.
- Whether the answer additionally teaches how to think about the problem as well.
- Any other considerations (such as quality of writing)
When the winners have been announced, which will likely happen on 7/25/17, they will be announced here. Those users will then be given private instructions about how to go about collecting their t-shirt!
This event has been extended to end on 7/24 instead of 7/21.
