Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: Tabula Rasa
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: As this is UIL, Spreading should be kept to a minimum with preference to clear and enunciated speech. The center of the debate should always be the case unless a counterplan is offered, in which case, the debate must be a competition between the world of the aff and neg. Clear impact weighing will be a deciding factor in the final decision, simply belting out impacts without proper comparison against the impacts of your opponent. Framework is a necessary argument if you wish to get anywhere close to kritikal debate, which again should be limited in UIL.


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
As this is UIL, spreading should be kept to a minimum with a large preference on clear and enunciated speech. This debate should center around a Value/Criterion comparison of the aff/neg, but wiggle room will be given to those who prefer using a single standard with proper explanation of why the usual structure is being changed. This is not policy debate, so do not have a "plan text" or run a CX case here, this is meant to have a philosophic bend to it, and is not simply an issue of who has the largest impact.
