How the Winning Team is Decided
Judging and vote tabulation is determined by averaging the 5 concealed judge’s
scores and the scores of the home viewers.
For the concealed judges,
Judging for each debater would be based on 5 catagories, worth 2 points each with
a perfect score
The level of respect they give to there opponents. Do they talk down to them or do they instead try
to reason and persuade?
Do they give a strong case?
Are they just making up stuff to win the argument?
Storytelling and humor
Answering the Question
Are they avoiding the question?
Each debater’s score would be averaged in with the other debater’s from their
respective teams. This score would be averaged with the 50 person audience score.
Finally that score is averaged in with the overall score the teams receive from the
Voting for the Home Audience
The home audience would vote on the debater’s and the onstage audience. This
would need to be much simpler. How ’bout this:
TERRIBLE = 0 Points. . .Team’s arguments and the way the audience
presented itself had absolutely no value
MOSTLY BAD = 2.5 Points
AVERAGE = 5 Points
PRETTY GOOD = 7.5 points
