The episode begins in The Lair with Justin explaining to his delinquent class the problems of wand functions. Then he announces that's their last class. At that moment Alex comes through the portal and explains that she's the new Wizard Teacher Assistance much to Justin frustration.

Later, at the loft, Harper is making a memory book. Jerry asks Theresa if they had made memories books for their kids and she points to three boxes with each of the Russo siblings names. They found out that Max's box has nothing but the bill. The Russo parents decide to reproduce all of Max achievements because they never kept the original ones.

Later at the Hall of Wizards, the delinquent class is making their last test: they had to detect and name the various artifacts within the Hall. The delinquent class is fascinated with the Aquarium, which is actualy a magically-contained endless waterfall, and the Wand in the crystal ball, which once belonged to a legendary wizard. Then Professor Crumbs and the courier named Cragmont flash in. Professor Crumbs is happy to see Justin there and says that one day he might have his own statue in the Hall. After Crumbs leaves, Cragmont says to the students go to the chairs in the bottom of the Hall, which are enchanted so they can reveal the students' knowledge.

Later back at the lair, they're informed that they failed. Justin blames Alex for the failure, saying that she did all that just to make sure Justin could not return to the competiton. Alex leaves and says that she will figure it out what happened. Alex returns to the Hall of Wizards and enters Cragmont room to get the test file. She finds out that the file says that they won. When Alex is trying to contact Justin, she's caught by Cragmont. She tries to flee but Cragmont puts her within the Aquarium. When Justin and the delinquent class attempts to save Alex they're quickly defeated by Cragmont who turns Justin into a statue and destroys the class wands.

However one of the delinquents, Felix, takes the Wand in the Crystal Ball, proving that he's a descendent from the legendary wizard, and use the powerful wand to release both Alex and Justin. Crumbs shows up and turns Cragmont into a talking history book. Crumbs, now informed about the test true outcome, announces that the delinquent can now return to Wiztech and Justin is back in the family wizard competiton.

In the ending credits, Max reveals that the only why his achievements are not in his box is because he kept them all in his bed.Though he thought it was nice of them to remake all of them for him.
