# Math Kangaroo Scoring

Math Kangaroo uses DataMate, a web-based assessment management tool to process and score paper answer sheets and the Oasis LMS to process and score electronic tests.

Each question has a point value. 1/3 of questions are 3 points each, 1/3 - 4 points each, 1/3 - 5 points each. The sum of earned points is the student's score or result.

There are no points taken away for giving an incorrect answer.

The students who earn the twenty highest scores are placed on the National Winner List ranked 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, or 20 - at each grade nationwide.

The students who earn the three highest scores in their state are placed on the State Winners List ranked 1, 2, and 3 - at each grade statewide.

The maximum possible score is 96 at grades: 1, 2, 3, and 4; and 120 points at grades 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.

If several students' score is 100% or other highest score at a given grade level they all rank 1 and all receive gold medals. The second highest score puts a student in second place, and so on.

Percentile is the percentage of students whose scores are lower than your student's score at that grade. There are two percentile rankings: state and nationwide.
