How To Complete Rubric Sheets Mark rubric level achieved. Each row MUST HAVE a mark! Add comments you want the team to see. The teams get these forms back. Keep your remarks constructive! There are 3 focus areas for each award. Use the time between sessions to complete the rubric for the team you just saw.
Some Judging Specifics Core Values: 5-minute teamwork activity, 2-minute team poster presentation if team has one and 3 minutes for Q&A. If Core Values and Robot judging is in the same room, observe the team during the robot judging session. Robot: 4 minutes for a robot summary if the team brought one (not required!), then break the team up between running the robot through its missions and showing the programming and robot design for the next 11 minutes in a Q&A format. If no robot summary, judges should ask teams to show missions and then break up into programming and robot design Q&A. Project: 5-minute project presentation (includes set-up time) and 10 minutes for Q&A. No adult coaches/mentors/parents are allowed in the room. Complete the rubric for the team you just saw before the start of the next judging session!
Each Judge Panel Completes A Summary Sheet Selecting Their Top Two Teams For Their Award Category This must be done BEFORE you exit your judging panel’s room after your final judging session! One Rubric Sheet For Each Team Continually Rank Teams As You See Them Use “Eye Doctor” Method
Summary Sheet Example Each judging panel will complete a summary sheet listing the top two teams of the group of teams they saw.
Judges Return to Main Judges’ Room With Ranking Sheets and Sit With the Other Judges in Their Award Category Ranking sheets are compiled and nominated teams are entered into judging spreadsheet. Judges on each award panel will now work on ranking top teams for deliberations. Robot Design Award Project AwardCore Values Award For example, all the Project Judges would sit together.
RANKING TOP TEAMS FOR AWARDS A judge from each panel should describe their number one team and explain why they were number one. Other judges should listen for unique findings from the judging session using the criteria laid out in the relevant rubric as guidance. If absolutely necessary, visit one or two teams’ pit tables if there are exhibits that the other judges need to see. Based on these descriptions and POSSIBLE BUT NOT REQUIRED visits, quickly rank the teams in the table to the right and return to the Judges’ Room.
Get to Know Your Panel Take 10 minutes right now to choose panel positions now. Divide duties such as taking notes, timekeeping and completing rubrics. Decide on who will focus on what aspect of judging session – for example, robot judges decide who will focus on programming and who will look at other aspects of robot. Identify if there’s a judge missing from your panel.
In Summary, You Will: See your teams, completing a rubric for each one. Pick your number 1 and 2 teams for your award area. Return to Judges’ Room within 10 minutes of your last session and sit with the other judges for your award. Take all the number 1 teams for your award area and rank them. Continue the process with the number 2 teams. We will then all select the Champions Awards and finalize the rest of the awards using the Judging Lite spreadsheet.
Team Rankings and Robot Scores Will Be Entered Into Judging Lite Spreadsheet
Award Guidelines Teams must participate in all 3 judged areas and the robot game to be eligible for a Core Award (Champion, Robot Design, Project, Core Values and Robot Performance). No team receives more than 1 award unless they also win the Robot Performance award (highest score from the 3 official competition rounds of the robot game). Champion’s Award requirements: o Robot game score is in top 40% of highest single scores at event o Team must complete all 3 parts of Project o Team must adhere to all Core Values These same criteria should also be used for choosing teams to advance to state.
