  • General notes about scores

  • The scoring program

History s lessons
History’s Lessons

  • The purpose of the score room is to ensure accurate score calculations

  • The most error-prone part of the process is the hand calculation of the intermediate scores

    • Averaging judge scores for each score item

    • Combining score items

Our response
Our Response

  • Changes to Team Challenge processing

    • Enter each appraiser’s scores directly into one computer

    • Number Cruncher’s scores entered into another

    • Score checking in the score room only for weight held totals

    • The computer will generate the Master and Team score sheets

      • These will go back to the challenge rooms

Calculation flow
Calculation flow:


Score sheet


Appraisers scores

Number Cruncher

rolls up scores

Math #1

Cross check scores

Enter summary scores

Data entry #1

Enter detail scores

Instant challenge is different from team challenge
Instant Challenge is Different From Team Challenge

  • Instant challenges will still be combined by hand, due to security concerns

  • The hand calculations will be checked in the score room, as before

  • The summary Instant Challenge score for each team will be entered into the computer

Data entry into the computer
Data entry into the computer

  • In the morning, enter the appraiser info into the computer

    • Names

    • Which items each appraiser is scoring

  • The computer will accept scores for each item and each appraiser

  • It will then calculate the combined scores

Score ranges
Score Ranges

  • Every score has a valid range, it is listed on the score sheet

  • Hopefully, this will limit out-of-range appraising errors

  • If a score is out of range, the score sheet must go back to the head judge

    • Use the “Issues” feature of the program

      • next session will go over this

Types of scores objective
Types of Scores: Objective

  • Either something happened, or it didn’t

  • Scores noted with the keyword “OR”, e.g., “0 OR 10”

  • The only valid scores are those listed.

    • It is not a range of scores

  • If multiple appraisers score this item, their scores must match

Types of scores subjective
Types of Scores: Subjective

  • Appraiser’s opinion

  • Scores noted with a separating hyphen, e.g., “1-5”

    • Valid scores are anywhere in the specified range

  • There must be at least two appraisers scoring each subjective item

  • Multiple appraisers’ scores are averaged

Subjective score exception 0
Subjective score exception: 0

  • Is zero ever a legal score for a score with the range of 1-5?

  • Yes, if the item to be scored was not present in the team’s performance

  • Then the score becomes like an objective score, and all appraisers’ scores must be zero

  • The program enforces this rule

  • An explanation must accompany the score, which we enter into the program


  • Deductions must be accompanied by an explanation

  • This explanation must be legibly copied onto the team and appraisers’ score sheets

    • We enter the reason into the program

  • Remember to check the prep area and weigh-in sheets for deductions

  • If deductions do not agree, we need to ask the head judge

Scoring this Year’s Team Challenges

  • It’s Your Move

  • On Holiday

  • Dual DI-lemma

  • StranDId!

  • Art of Improv

Score room processes team challenge scores
Score Room Processes: Team Challenge scores

  • All incoming scores will be logged in

  • Scores will be entered into two computers

    • First from the master score sheet

    • Second from the individual appraisers’ sheets

    • Cross-check results via the network

    • Second machine will print team and master score sheets

    • Each machine will be “first” for some challenges, “second” for others.

Score room procedures team challenge scores cont
Score Room Procedures:Team Challenge Scores (cont.)

  • Deduction reasons will be entered into the second computer

    • Also reasons for zero subjective scores

    • Will be printed on the TM and HA score sheets

  • All paper goes back into the team’s envelope

    • Runner will return the entire envelope to the Team Challenge Room

Score room procedures instant challenge
Score Room Procedures:Instant Challenge

  • Instant Challenge scores are computed before they come to the score room

  • Instant Challenge score computations will be checked in the score room before entry

  • Single score per team is entered into both computers

    • Plus possible deduction

    • Both computers enter all IC scores, for cross check

      • Same order (first, second) as for TC

Score room procedures general
Score Room Procedures:General

  • Any problems found will be sent back to the team challenge room

    • An “issue” will be entered in the computer

  • Keeping up-to-date with TC takes precedence over entering IC scores

    • Team managers are waiting for the TC scores

Setting up in the morning
Setting Up in the Morning

  • Determine scoring room assignments

  • For each challenge, determine who will enter first, and who will print scores

  • Enter appraisers and their scoring assignments into the second computer

    • First computer doesn’t know about appraisers

Score entry team challenge
Score Entry: Team Challenge

  • Arrange appraisers’ sheets in same order as table columns

    • We’ve asked for alphabetical order!

  • Ensure appraisers are scoring the items the computer expects

    • Appraisers must score same items for every team

  • Enter all scores for each appraiser

  • Remember to check for deductions, especially on the prep area form

    • Should already be on the Master form; check

Entering deductions
Entering Deductions

  • Deductions are not normally editable as a safety measure.

  • To enable:

    • Right click in the score area

    • Select “Modify deductions”

About accuracy and speed
About Accuracy and Speed

  • We MUST be accurate in our scoring

  • We also need to be fast

    • Teams are waiting to pick up their scores from the head judge

  • But not at the expense of accuracy

  • We need to stay current with the incoming TC paper

How to handle problems
How to Handle Problems

  • Talk with your score room leader

  • Send problems back to the challenge room

  • Enter an “Issue” in the program, for any score that goes back

    • This lets us ensure that we resolve any problems before finishing

Issues form modify team form
Issues Form (Modify Team Form)

Instant challenge
Instant Challenge

  • Scores will be calculated in the IC rooms

  • We will re-do that work, to make sure that the calculations are correct

  • If a discrepancy is found, we do it all again (different person)

  • A single score per team will be entered in the computer

  • We can’t go over score sheets ahead of time due to challenge security

Your preferences
Your Preferences

  • Are you comfortable using a computer?

  • Can you enter data accurately and quickly?

  • One person in each score room will be checking IC scores and weights with a calculator, and logging scores in.

  • Would you prefer the calculator role?

Your equipment
Your Equipment

  • Do you have a computer you could / would bring if needed?

    • Must be 300 MHz or better, with at least 32 MB memory

    • Portables are preferred

  • Same question for a printer?

    • Ink jet or laser

  • If so, please contact Al at al@nh-di.org
