              Primary Goal

• The primary goal of a DI Score Room is to
  provide the announcer at the conclusion of a
  tournament with an accurate list of place
  finishes for the teams that competed at that
  tournament.
• Help keep the tournament running smoothly
• And to get everyone home at a reasonable
  hour




               Updated 1/5/2010
              Secondary Goals

• Produce scores that can be posted or
  distributed for teams to review after the
  tournament
• Produce a synopsis of the results that can be
  posted on a website or released to the media
• Produce a historical record of the tournament
• Give people who like working behind the scenes
  an opportunity to participate in the DI program
  doing something they enjoy

                   The Score Master

•   Team player, detail-oriented, computer literate,
    technically capable, general knowledge of the challenges,
    difficult to fluster, good communication skills
•   Needs to be involved early just as any other challenge
    master
•   Should become a member of discoring egroup
•   Define the score room policies and procedures
      – Review with your RD and Tournament Director to
        make sure they agree and support
•   Collect the hardware and software needed to score the
    tournament, well before the tournament date
•   Lead the training of the score room personnel

           The Score Room’s Role in
                the Tournament
• In many ways, the score room is the “nerve
  center” of the tournament
   – It has the best overall view of how the day is flowing
   – Can provide early notice of any trouble spots to TD

• Score master has to communicate with
  everyone
   –   Tournament, Affiliate, Regional Directors
   –   Challenge Masters
   –   Head Appraisers
   –   Score room personnel

                To Crunch, or
               Not To Crunch?
• Number crunching is the single most error
  prone step of working with scores
• Also labor intensive, since has to be done again
  in the score room (people make mistakes)
• We recomend not using number crunchers in
  Team Challenge and IC at all!
• DI scoring program supports entering all the
  appraisers’ scores directly into the computer:
  “Detailed with Appraisers” (DWA) mode for
  both Challenges and IC

SCORE PRGRAM BASICS




     Updated 1/5/2010
            Score Sheet Considerations
Challenge A, DIrect Deposit:
Score sheet package has an update to fix a small problem on the Optional
  Appraiser Worksheet, make sure you have the final version.
Challenge has a scoring element based on the amount of time remaining
  after the presentation concludes. The Appraiser packet recommends that
  Appraiser teams use countdown timers when timing this challenge.
The Appraiser score sheet has spaces to record the remaining minutes and
  seconds, and then also a space to record the remaining time in seconds.
The scoring program has the ability to enter the remaining time as minutes
  and seconds, or purely as seconds.
If your tournament is using Detail mode scoring, recommendation is to have
    your appraisers ignore the field in the right hand column which is straight
    seconds, and only enter the time remaining in minutes and seconds.
    Then the time in seconds can be calculated by the program. This avoids
    a source of possible error.
Challenge E, Breaking DI News:
There are real scores (3b and 3c) on the Prep Area Sheet. Since this sheet
  normally does not contain scores, the Prep Area Sheet frequently gets
  short shrift in the score room... not this year!

                               Updated 1/5/2010
               DI Score Program:
              New Features for 2010
• DI eXtreme regional and affiliate challenges will be supported in the score
  program.
• Preferences simplified... removed several items from the Preferences
  screens, to try to make the program more straightforward to use. Score
  Team believes that these are items that no one was using, and were just
  in the way.
    – Advanced checkbox and supporting menus removed. These are
      replaced by the merge wizard and are not needed anymore.
• Backups enhanced... There are two changes for backups.
   – Backup directories are now "named" with the date and time at which
     the backup was taken, instead of a simple generation number, with
     the directory named "1" always being the most recent backup.
   – You can now specify multiple backup directories, for instance onto a
     stick and across the network to another machine in the score room.
• Many bugs fixed! Please keep reporting anything you think may be a
  bug...

Summary Mode


                    •   Requires the least data
                        entry and computer
                        power
                    •   Number Cruncher
                        computes the raw
                        scores
                    •   Computer scales the
                        final results and prints
                        them
                    •   This is the way Instant
                        Challenge works




 Updated 1/5/2010
Detail Mode with Appraisers
      (Recommended)
                          •   The mode we encourage
                          •   Results in fewest errors
                          •   Requires data entry of all
                              appraisers’ scores
                          •   No Number Cruncher
                              needed (Appraisal team
                              Organizer instead)
                          •   Computer verifies ranges
                               –   Verifies appraiser agreement
                                   for objective scores
                          •   Computer calculates it all
                          •   Computer scales the final
                              results and prints them

                   DwA Logistics

• Number cruncher is optional
   – Does NOT remove need for a person, the role just changes.
   – “Appraisal Team Organizer or Paper Work Manager”
     instead
• Eliminates ALL score calculation errors
• All scores entered into program twice
• Team Manager and Head Appraiser score
  sheets printed for the challenge room
• Master Sheet also printed to travel with the
  Packet (no multipart Master Sheets needed)


                      Updated 1/5/2010
          DI Scoring Team Axiom
• People make errors
   – range errors
   – math errors
   – data entry errors
• To catch the errors, every action needs to be
  done twice and compared for the same
  answer
• If you don’t believe us, spend a day in a score
  room; you will be convinced
   – In a perfect world, all Tournament Directors, Challenge
     Masters and Head Appraisers should do a tour in the
     score room




                         Updated 1/5/2010
How should you organize and run your
            score room?
 • There are almost as many ways to run a
   successful Score Room as there are Score
   Room Challenge Masters.
 • 4 Typical Methods (read on for the gory details)
    –   Classic - Number crunchers
    –   Centralized
    –   Distributed
    –   Hybrid

          Paper Flow Suggestions

• Check-in
   – Log each score packet into the score room, with time
   – Program can print log sheets to help
   – Check-in program also available from the scoring website.
• Verify crunchers' math if using crunchers
   – Can be done by another person using calculator, or
   – Can be done by Detail with Appraiser mode in Score
     Program
   – Always double check structure weights
• Data entry
   – Twice, to ensure there are no data entry problems




                       Updated 1/5/2010
       Paper Flow Suggestions (cont)

• Return incorrect packets for corrections
   – Flag packet with a red sticky dot
       » Highlights need for immediate action by head appraiser
       » Lets the score room expedite it on return
   – Any time an appraiser’s intention is not crystal clear
   – Must be logged out, and then back in, with times
   – Can fix math errors in the score room, but notify the
     challenge room Head Appraiser
   – Range errors, etc., get returned to challenge room
• File score packets for easy retrieval
   – Count on having to retrieve at least one packet for rework
     late in the day, when things are already hectic




                        Updated 1/5/2010
          Making up the Score Packet
• Team label on the upper left corner of envelope                          Label
                                                                                   Status Dots
• Please put the papers in this order—it really helps
    – Deductions worksheet
    – Weigh-in sheet     (Structure only)
    – Weight held sheet (Structure only)
    – Appraisers sheets
         » In alphabetical order
    – Prep area sheet
    – Everything else last
         » No score-relevant information


    – Stickies on the special stickies sheet stay at the appraisal site to give back to
      Team manager with team scores
         » ONLY positive comments! Trash inappropriate ones…

                   Minimum Score Room
                         Staffing
•   1 Score room leader (optional: 2nd/co-leader)
•   2 data entry people for every 50 teams
•   1 Paperwork Manager
•   1 utility infielder
     – paperwork checkin/out
     – check IC score and structure weights calculations
     – score packet filing
• Site
     – Appraisal Team Organizer or Number Crunchers
         » 1 per TC challenge room
     – 1 or More Computer Operators / Challenge (Depending on Challenge
       Size and Location)
• Score runners
     – 1 per TC challenge room
• Optional, but highly recommended
     – 1 Score Checker / Challenge
     – 1 or more Techie guys to setup equipment and answer the normal help
       calls. Note: these guys are usually easy to find and really enjoy helping!

                    Score Runners

• Often not thought of as “score room” personnel
• Critical for a smooth running tournament
• Try for one per challenge room
   – Avoids the “closed door” syndrome




                       Updated 1/5/2010
          Miscellaneous thoughts…

• Supply computers or calculators, require their
  use!
• Outlaw staplers in challenge rooms
   – Some would also include paper clips and pencils with
     erasers … we may use pens this year!
• Provide 9 x 12 manila envelopes to store and
  transport each team’s TC paperwork
   – Safe, secure, easily filled
• Use pre-printed labels on all team paperwork
   – Print the labels from the same database you create the
     scoring files from, so they’re consistent




                          Updated 1/5/2010
              Scheduling of Awards
                  Ceremonies
• Leave adequate time after the last competing
  team; we prefer at least 1 hour 15 minutes from
  last team start
   – Performance runs 8 to 10 minutes
   – 10 minutes for appraisers to work with the kids and fill out
     forms
   – 15 minutes to process in score room and return verified
     scores to challenge room for the TM.
   – TM has 30 minutes to review and potentially request
     Dialogue
   – And rooms occasionally run late!!!




                         Updated 1/5/2010
      Scheduling The Tournament
• DIschedule by Chuck Bowler
  – Utilizes a .csv file of your teams to help you schedule teams
    and rooms. Can be the same file you normally use as input
    to DI Scoring program
  – Enforces times between IC and TC
  – Highlights when a Team Manager has conflicts with multiple
    teams
  – Exports a file that can be used as the input to the DI Scoring
    program
  – Takes a little effort, but is a BIG improvement over manual
    scheduling

  – More information: http://www.njdi.org/apps/Schedule.html

                         Updated 1/5/2010
            More about hardware

• Why 2 sets of hardware?
   – Each step has to be done twice by different
     people to guard against errors.
   – An old Irish Proverb: “If something can
     possibly go wrong, it will, 15 minutes before
     the awards ceremony” (apologies to Murphy).
• Extras: Don’t leave home without them!
   – Printer cartridges, toner, paper, extension
     cords, power strips, USB keys, highlighters…
     Dark Chocolate!
   – Soft copy of all forms used in the tournament
     so extras can be printed if needed

                   Updated 1/5/2010
           Before Tournament Day

• Create the schedule in CSV format, save it on a
  USB memory key.
• Always, always, always, try out the program
   – On the hardware you’ll be using
   – With your data
   – Before the tournament!!!
   – Then reload the machine with fresh data files when you
     know everything’s OK




                        Updated 1/5/2010
                               Tips & Tricks
•   Consult the considerable documentation
     –   written by a professional
     –   there are topics for tournament directors and score room leads
     –   covers preparing to score, running a score room, using the program,
         scoring rules
•   Don’t use under powered hardware!
•   Run a sample tournament in as much detail as possible before
    the real thing!
•   Create your schedule in Excel or DIschedule
     –   export it as comma separated values (save as csv)
     –   easy to import into the scoring program
•   Print labels for your appraisers from same data
     –   saves the appraisers time, reduces errors and eye strain
•   Join the DI Scoring egroup
•   Practice using quick search with the team number and train
    your computer operators using it. It’s much faster and more
    accurate then using team names!
