Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 3
Judging approach: tabula rosa
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: I believe speakers should be judged based on content organization, use of evidence, tone, and ability to answer questions. I believe presiding officers should be judged on consistency of preference execution, management of the room, and recognition consistency.
Paradigm: I am a Tabula Rossa. I believe that Stock Issues and speaker duties are only as important as the debaters make them. Debaters must persuade me one way or the other.
