Creative use of materials
All of the above

Assistant Team Managers under the age of 18 may NOT accompany the team into the Instant Challenge competition room.
Team Managers may not advise, signal or communicate with the team or the Appraisers during the Instant Challenge competition.
One Team Manager, preferably the Team Manager of Record, may accompany the team to the Instant Challenge competition room,
All of the above are true.
What happens in IC stays in IC

Somebody's feelings could be hurt
Some of the Challenges are dumb

All of the above
Never, no questions are allowed in Instant Challenge
Only while the Challenge is being read
Once time has begun
Only during the alloted question and answer time
As a result, we do not allow teams to ask questions in the Instant Challenge room
It is recommended that one appraiser should be assigned the task of answering team questions. This provides a consistency across teams.
All appraisers should give their own opinion as to the correct solution.
Answers should not validate a team's solution.
Both B and D are correct
Only during the time the team is presenting their solution, their planning time should not be evaluated

Give them points for how tall you think it was before falling over
The appraiser assigned to measure the tower should work with the team to identify the tallest point of what remains and measure that.
Help the team feel upbeat about what they did accomplish
Restart the clock and let the team begin again
B and c
The appraiser should decide if the solution is as expected and score it accordingly.
The team should receive the benefit of the doubt, and an appropriate number of points should be awarded
The appraisal team should tell the team members that their solution is wrong
The appraisal team should tell the team members that their solution is wrong, reread the Challenge and let them try again
The appraisers should give the team a deduction for violating the spirit of the challenge
Appraisers should not be looking for what ISN’T there, but for what IS.
Appraisers must not evaluate by comparing team to team, but rather they must award points based on where the team’s efforts are in terms of the Appraiser’s own internal criteria for that element.
Appraisers should evaluate similar elements consistently throughout the day. The rule of thumb is, “If something seems unusually creative in the morning, you must continue to appraise it the same way in the afternoon, even if you have seen many such items by that time.”
Appraisers must not discuss their evaluations with one another. This is to ensure that each Appraiser’s opinions are his or hers alone, free of the influence, perspectives, or persuasion of anyone else.
All of the above
One appraiser should be assigned the task of measurement for all teams
A videotape is available for replay should you have any questions
All appraisers must record the same score on their scoresheet
A and c are true, b is false
All of the above statements are true
Tell the team to leave
Sit down and record their scores
Talk with the team about their solution
