Guidelines/Instructions
The total achievement score is based on how many towers were correctly completed in the allotted time and how many moves were required to complete them. For each item, the participant gets one point for completing the tower in the allotted time and receives bonus points depending on how few moves were needed to complete the tower. These points are totaled to arrive at the achievement score, which ranges from 0 to 30.
