The test will be delivered electronically and you will proctor your students online; the test booklets and answer sheets are therefore not needed. In May we will send you awards for your winners.
Math Kangaroo Manager to do and to know:
All students have equal opportunities to participate regardless of their math abilities.
It is necessary to review the received competition material asap (late Feb) to make sure there are no discrepancies.

Be prepared to have volunteers (parents or educators) to proctor students (in-person or online)
Be prepared to scan all answer sheets (if paper test) and email the scan to the provided email address right after the test or a day after. The originals you keep with you for a minimum of 11 months.

If you would like to register a few schools/centers that have a different address you should fill out the form multiple times. When your application is received you will be contacted within one week with the center readiness information so you can notify your students about the registration being opened. Even with several centers you will have just one manager account.
Centers with ‘By Invitation’ registration
By Invitation centers allow registration of only their own students. The manager provides their families with Center Invitation Code to be used on the registration page. The manager should notify the families to keep the code confidential and not share it with outsiders.
Centers with open registration for any student
Open registration centers allow registration for any student at any grade. Only in-the-classroom centers can have an open registration status.
We are grateful for your interest to join us in our mission of helping students love math.
