The tests that were given at the 2018 TechTest Jr. events are attached here. There are four documents:
•  The 5th/6th grade test without answers. This was given to the 5th and 6th grade students: TechTest 2018 – 5th-6th Grade
•  The 7th/8th grade test without answers. This was given to the 7th and 8th grade students: TechTest 2018 – 7th-8th Grade
•  The 5th/6th grade test with answers. This is for use in verifying students’ work: TechTest 2018 5th-6th grade test with detailed answers
•  The 7th/8th grade test with answers. This is for use in verifying students’ work: TechTest 2018 7th-8th grade test with detailed answers

The documents without answers can be used by students to prepare for upcoming TechTest Jr. events, or to just hone their problem solving skills. The documents with answers contain detailed solution methodologies. These can be used by students and teachers alike to not only verify answers, but to help understand how to go about developing solutions to these types of problems.

Many thanks go out to Peter Murphy of Nevada City for taking the time to create the detailed solutions. Many thanks also go out to Telestream and AJA Video for hosting the event each year and exposing these talented students to what a career in the technology sector is like.
