Your judging scorecard might just be a single question with some optional comments, or it might be very complicated with dozens of questions. Some best practices for judging criteria is to ask three to five questions on a 1 to 5 or 1 to 10 scale, but your program might have specific needs. Let's show you how to add these criteria to the evaluation scorecard.

To configure your Evaluation Scorecard, first navigate to your program.

Under the Round Settings drop down menu, click Evaluation Form.

There may be a default question there which you can delete if you wish. To add a question click Add Question.

Add a question label and Instructions to the judges.

Question Types

There are several question types to choose from.

1 - 3, 1 - 5, and 1 - 10 are simply drop down menus that the judge can pick from to rate on those scales. 

Numeric Score would have a judge type a number into a field where you specify the minimum and maximum values.

List allows you to create your own custom drop down menus and assign your own point values to each option.

Free Text is for comments.

Separator is not used for scoring, but simply an area to provide even further instruction to judges.

File Upload allows you to permit your judges to upload a document to their scorecard. 

Weighted Questions

Each question has the option to be weighted with a multiplier. This means that whichever value was selected by the judge for that question will be multiplied by the value in the Weight / Multiplier field. In the example below, if a judge chooses 10, but with a weight of 2, the score awarded for this question will be 20 (10 x 2). By manipulating the weights you can have some questions be worth more than others, commonly used in situations where question 1 is worth 20% of the total score, and question 2 is worth 40% of total score, etc, etc.
