The competition consisted of multiple tasks. Some were easy, such as downloading a file into a specific folder and naming it, and other depended on their creativity, such as designing a garden for a family house or designing a flier, properly filled with important information. Czech minister of education announced the news.
Between answering the questions the participants filled a survey asking how much influence had their school on their performance. Main czech school inspector assumes the schools had a large, yet probably not essential influence. But according to him, the main cause of how well our students did is their understanding of the questions in the test.
