Last Year's Numbers:
Practice Test ..................... 51,468
Level 1 Teams ....................... 3,455
Level 2 Teams ....................... 1,593
Championship Teams ..... 104
A team is comprised of four primary team members. Two alternates (optional) may compete in the online rounds but will not be allowed to travel to the Championship in Washington, DC should the team qualify. In the Academic competition, cadets may be freshmen, sophomores or juniors. In the Leadership competition, cadets may be sophomores or juniors. Seniors may not compete.
One of the main goals of this program is to prepare students for college entrance exams (SAT and ACT). The competition will not conclude until late spring after most seniors have completed their high school exit and college entrance exams. Another program goal is to increase retention among 10th and 11th graders which would not include graduating seniors.
Instructors may use seniors as “coaches” during the team’s preparation for the competition. Seniors may drill team members on language arts, math, science, JROTC curriculum, and current events. However, seniors are NOT allowed in the room during the actual testing.
Team registration is open October 26 – November 20 at www.cofcontests.com. Prior to registering your team, confirm your school’s participation in the free and reduced lunch program (percentage of students in the school who receive free or reduced lunch). You may need to contact your front office staff to obtain this information.
If your team advances to Level II (February 1-15), you will follow the same procedure, using the Instructor’s username and password.

High School Demographics – Number of students, Number in Free Lunch Program, type of school (suburban, rural, private, public, etc.)
* Be prepared to create a unique username and password. If your team advances to Level II, you will use the same login information for the entire year.

Level I begins on November 1 and concludes on November 20.
The Level I and Level II tests are taken as a team around one computer. The four primary team members and two alternates (optional) take the test together. An instructor or proctor is the only other person allowed in the room during testing.
No, the competition website (www.cofcontests.com) is live and available 24 hours/day during the 20-day testing window.
Yes, all teams must complete Level I by November 20. We highly encourage all teams to take the test prior to the last day of competition.
The test should take approximately one hour, but if you have not registered, you should allow extra time to login to the website and enter the required information. Once a team has logged in, there is no ability to stop and start over. The competition must be completed in one sitting.
If it is prior to November 1, the test is not available. The Instructor should Sign In after November 1 to access the Dashboard with the link to the test.
Check with your internet administrator at school. The school may have an internet security blocking system preventing you from accessing the website. Ask the administrator to adjust the security settings. Another suggestion is to restart the computer to make sure there are no other browsers open and nothing is running in the background.
Find another computer system to access the website. You may try the school library, local library or a home computer.
At the end of each section the section score will be displayed; at the end of the test, all scores, including the final score, will be displayed.
Scores will automatically be sent to the Foundation’s server.
All teams will receive an email a few days after the conclusion of Level I. In addition, teams moving on to Level II will be listed on the Foundation’s website.
The teams scoring in the top 50% will move on to Level II. The number of teams competing in Level II will be half of the number of teams in Level I (but we won’t have the total number until after Level I is complete).
Yes, all travel, lodging, and meals are covered. Incidental expenses (souvenirs, etc.) are not included.
Congratulations! You (the team and one instructor/chaperone) will win an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC. In addition, all teams advancing to the final round will receive certificates of achievement and team plaques. Other prizes may be awarded.
