Your privacy is critically important to us, and we have a few fundamental principles:
We do not share or sell any personal information.
All the information is accessible to a person or school who registered students only. If school registers a student then the school has access to the student’s information including the results.
We also do not share any results. However on our website we publish names of the winners on the national level (with their results) and the names of the state level winners. Parents’ requests not to display winners’ names are respected.
The information is kept in our database for as long as a student is participating in Math Kangaroo competition because sometimes longer participation contributes to the decisions about the top awards.
Log into your MK user account. Click on My Registrations, then the center you registered your child at and then Event Details. The button called Move registration will help you to select a different MK center and move the registration there. It can only be done by January 1.
Answer cards are kept eleven months after the competition.
Requests for photo-copies of cards or re-scoring involve time. We ask for a donation of $15 with your request for a copy of your student’s card to cover our labor costs. Click here to go to donation page.
Include student’s id, name, level and the participation place: state, city, and institution name. The requests need to be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow up to two weeks for finding the card and scoring it again. Note: Answer cards are shredded eleven months after the competition.
There are different reasons why students lose points on the tests. In Math Kangaroo Competition they are:
More than one answer for the same question
Math Kangaroo USA uses Scantron cards for students’ answers and has them automatically scored by Scantron Corporation at their facility.
In case we find that the card was not scored properly because of an error in our process, we will adjust the student’s score in the list of the results, and refund fee for requesting a copy of your answer card.
All donations are used to support our mission of helping students love and enjoy math nationwide, and donations are used for:
participation fee for children from less fortunate families
lowering the participation fee
sponsoring awards for all participants, college grants, international summer camps
funding math workshops for children and teenagers
