Writing and editing the initial set of questions
Maintaining a continuity of the categories and questions between multiple years of the exam.
Ensuring that the difficulty level of the questions is appropriate for all students
Re-examining the finalized set of questions for any online problems
Testing the final exam on multiple systems to ensure the proper functionality of the digital format for teachers, sponsors, and students
Coordinating with participating teachers, school administrators, and students
Mailing out awards and medals to winning participants
