    Hello Everyone!

    We received Explore test scores last week in the mail from ACT. Numats toolbox has not updated and says that scores have not been received yet. Does anyone know a time frame that the 2013 Numats award criteria will be listed? The website just has the criteria for 2012.

    Where is 2012 criteria?

    I heard that the award criteria usually come out in late April or early May. That is the time when people receive the invitation to the award ceremony.

    NUMATS toolbox is updated with the percentile comparing to the same grade. But it seems that the award criteria is still not available.

    Would you be willing to share that percentile/grade info here?

    We got an email from NUMATS a month or so ago saying that they were switching the awards ceremony from spring to fall, and that they would move the last date you could test and still qualify to later in the spring than in the past. I wonder if this will affect when they publish the award criteria.

    Sure, DS9 is 4th grade. His composite score is 21, 98.6% percentile. Total score is 84.

    I read on this forum before that the homepage of the toolbox tells you if the kid is qualified to go to award. Unfortunately I don't see such a message in our toolbox. frown We really hope that DS can go to the award as he took the the test very seriously this time. Especially he got a perfect score in math. We are all very proud of him for his scores.

    The statistic data link in the toolbox is still 2012 data. NUMATS web page says that the top 2% go to the award. But in reality it seems only less than 2% went before.

    I wish that I could find more award info from NUMATS via email/phone call. I tried to contact them. But no response. If anyone knows more, would you mind share here as well? DS9 keeps asking me if he is qualified to go to the award. frown
