It is important to understand how scoring is calculated when judges submit their scores based on the different round types.

The score calculation methods are described below:

  • Rating : Each entry receives a score between 0 to 5 (0 if no rating provided for entry) for each judge
  • Assessment Rating : Each entry can have multiple assessment criteria which is from 0 to 5. Each criteria score is then multiplied by the weighting to derive a criteria score. All criteria scores are then summed with the other criteria scores for that entry.
  • Ranking: Each entry is provided a score based on it’s inverse position in the total list of assigned entries. For example if the judge has been assigned 10 entries to rank the entry with the highest ranking ie 1st is provided with a score of 10, 2nd is assigned a score of 9 and so on.

At the end of each round all the judges scores are added for each entry and that is the total score for the entry at the end of the round.

Important note: One scores from judges that have “Finalised” their score are counted. Any judges that have not submitted their scores via the “Finalise” button will not have their scores counted.
