How to Test
Open your ZenPlanner app and register for the test the same way you would for normal classes. Then just show up as you normally would for a class.
The Flips advancement test is being administered on the following dates:

- Friday, July 14th, 2023 @7:30pm

Each skill is scored from 0 to 10 points. In order to advance, students must accumulate a minimum of 80 points out of 100 total points, this equates to an average score of 8 or better on each skill. Any skill scored 0-2 will be an immediate failure, so be sure you review each skill and ask a coach if you have any questions.
