​Orange County Academic Pentathlon needs your support!

The Academic Pentathlon, an exciting five-event competition for sixth, seventh, and eighth graders, relies heavily on parents and community members volunteering their time, professionalism, and care to serve as Super Quiz Relay Proctors and Test Proctors for the 2018-2019 event season.

Volunteer Descriptions

Super Quiz Relay Proctor - As a Super Quiz Relay Proctor, you will be assigned one or two teams and score their answer sheets according to the correct answers displayed on the screen.  Super Quiz Relay is a public event in which teams compete in front of a live audience in a high school gym.  No experience is needed.  A brief orientation will be provided prior to each Super Quiz Relay event.

Test Proctor - As a Test Proctor, you will be teamed up with another community member to administer multiple-choice tests to a classroom of 30 students, monitor test room conduct, and distribute/collect testing materials.  Proctors must be objective and professional, able to clearly read directions aloud, and follow specific testing procedures.  All proctors will attend a brief orientation on the morning of the event. 

Note: If you are interested in being a Super Quiz Relay Proctor and have a child also participating in a Super Quiz Relay event, it is suggested that you volunteer during a time slot opposite your child's event.  We want you to enjoy cheering your child on!  However, if interested, volunteers are invited to proctor both Super Quiz Relay events.
