“A” Division written by Aaron and Katie Kohler:
We believe that quizzers who know all the material should be rewarded. The length of ten-point answers will remain the same throughout the year. However, as the year progresses, questions will be written to allow earlier hit points by quizzers who know all the material. This may include narrowing questions to chapter or book instead of sections, more references, or earlier key words.
At Leagues all questions will come from one verse. There will be two application questions per set from League Meets #1–4 but none after that point. At Districts more quotes will be asked, thirty-pointers may require up to three verses, and basic concordance information will be asked. At Regionals there will be a noticeable increase in difficulty with multiple thirty-pointers requiring advanced knowledge. At Nationals the goal is to reward the quizzers who have studied the most. Advanced concordance knowledge and long answers that need to be practiced beforehand should be expected.
“Middle School” Division written by Selena Rodriguez:
Middle School Practice Questions (found on the CD available from My Healthy Church) are a direct reflection of the questions that will be seen at League Matches. For new quizzers, learning the Middle School Study Questions (found on the Basic 5 CD) is a great place to start. These questions are sometimes slightly more complex and do not always have the shortest answers, but learning these questions will hopefully widen their ability to answer other questions as well.
Ten-pointers were made to be easy and interruptible, with key words coming early in the question. Ten-point answers are usually one to four words, but may sometimes be up to six words. Thirty-pointers are meant to reward quizzers who are learning complete verses. The twenty-pointers fall somewhere between and feature more two-part questions and answers than the ten-point questions. Ten-pointers will remain the same difficulty level throughout the year. In the later stages of competition, you can expect some thirty-pointers to require answers from consecutive verses.
Scripture text questions can almost always be interrupted before the “quote,” but they are longer questions so quizzers should be prepared to wait and listen for key words before interrupting. I enjoy featuring unique words in my questions, whether that means using them as key words, or using a significant one as the locator for an essence question answer.

Ten-pointers were made to be easy and interruptible, with key words coming early in the question. The twenty-pointers fall somewhere between and feature a few more two-part questions and answers than the ten-point questions. Thirty-pointers are meant to reward quizzers who are learning complete verses.
Within the first twelve “Toss Up” Questions, ten will be Middle School Study Questions (found on the Basic 5 CD or the Study Guide + CD) by Selena. Question numbers 13–20 will contain two Application Questions (found on Study Guide + CD). The rest of the questions will almost always be asked by Section Titles and will include several chapter analysis answers. There will be very few quotes, but those that are asked are from Primary Verses.
