Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 2
Judging approach: Stock Issues
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quality of evidence is more important than quantity of evidence
Paradigm: I am a stock issues judge. I believe the debate is to respond to the resolution and to prove your plan is the better plan. It is imperative that you refute your opponents plan and prove that your plan is better. Reasonableness and delivery are of equal importance.
