Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 50+
Judging approach: Other (please explain below)
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 flow judge. I will keep an accurate detailed flow of the round. In the end I will consider (evidence, communication skills and resolution of substantive issues).


Rounds judged: 50+
Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
I am a flow judge. At the end of the round I will examine all (communication skills, value, criteria and argumentation). I will see what was refuted by both sides and what was dropped. Thus determining the winner based on the round as a whole.
