    Contest Format

    • Chess Puzzle is offered for grades 2-8 in three divisions: grades 2-3, grades 4-5 and grades 6-8. As with other A+ events, districts may choose to structure with these as combined divisions or may choose to offer a separate division for each indvidual grade level.
    • Each division will take a 30-minute objective test plus a separate 5-minute tiebreaker section. A different test is provided for each of the three divisions. The tiebreaker section is identical for ALL divisions.
    • All Chess Puzzle test questions are now multiple-choice format, to allow for a broader scope of questions and increase the educational value of the contest (and make grading even easier).
    • Scoring is simple. For the main test and tiebreaker sections, contestants receive one point for each correct answer. There are no deductions for incorrect or unanswered questions. All grade levels will take the same tiebreaker section. Tiebreakers need only be graded for contestants actually involved in a tie.
