Purchasing Practice Questions IASP will continue to publish practice questions on this web site, which are free, and written by the same question writers as the competition questions. However, many coaches have requested information on how to purchase additional practice questions. The Lowell Academic Booster Club has taken on this project, and will sell sets of practice questions (approximately 1,000 junior level questions, and 1,500 senior level for $40 per set). The sets will include questions from each subject except for math. While these questions are not created by the same writers as the competition questions, we believe many coaches may be interested in using these as a tool for their team. For inquiries you should contact Joe Gianotti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Description of the Senior Division Indiana Academic Super Bowl
The high school (Senior Division) competition will be made up of five subject matter rounds (English, science, social studies, mathematics, and fine arts) and a sixth interdisciplinary round in which questions may come from any and all of the subject matter rounds. Some interdisciplinary questions will require knowledge of at least two subject areas. Junior Division teams do not compete in Fine Arts.
Senior Division teams will be made up of six squads. Each of the five subject area squads will consist of no more than five students. The interdisciplinary squad may consist of seven students. Any given student may compete on a maximum of two subject area squads and may also compete on the interdisciplinary squad (three squads total).
Any student enrolled full-time in grades 9-12 is eligible to compete on a high school team. Any full-time student in grades 7 and 8 is eligible to compete on a junior division team. Sixth grade students may participate if they are housed in the same building with the 7th and 8th graders as a middle school. Ninth graders housed in a middle school must either compete with the team from the high school which they will attend or they may compose a team of their own and compete in the high school division. Within these constraints, schools may select their teams in any manner and with any additional criteria they choose.
