This scorecard is in three parts:
   1. Part I can be copied and distributed to all testers.
   2. Part II is for IT personnel involved in installing and supporting the product for the test. (Note: These may also fill out Part I if they test the product.)
   3. Part III allows you to enter aggregate numbers for all testers.

Five competing products are assumed. However, you can add as many additional columns as you like. Part III is your final comparative scorecard for all products. This scorecard is based on the criteria outlined in the Info-Tech Advisor articles
"Metrics for Anti-Spam Testing" and "Best Practices for Testing Anti-Spam Solutions". For more, also see these white papers and articles.
