The school coordinator administers the contest at any convenient time during the contest window, then retains all testing materials until that weekend. On Thursday solutions become accessible to school coordinators via their account. The coordinator grades tests and enters scores for each student at the web site. If a school has a conflict with one of the testing weeks, we ask coordinators to reschedule the contest for the week just before the regular week and contact us to obtain testing materials early. Proctors should retain all contests and students should refrain from discussing the  problems until the Sunday following the official testing week. For more detailed information regarding running the Mandelbrot Competition, consult the Instructions form, available at the Forms page.

The school coordinator may give the Team Play at any point during the two weeks listed. After making copies, the coordinator then mails student responses to Greater Testing Concepts. A panel of graders will evaluate their papers on a Saturday morning, generally two full weeks after the contest window. Please note that the Team Play is open only to schools that participate in the Mandelbrot Competition.
