Each oral session and groups of posters within a poster session will be judged by one or two faculty judges. The goal is to give students feedback on their presentations and the opportunity to win a research award. Judges are volunteers and we appreciate the extra effort they go to. We tried to avoid judges judging students from their own school but when we had to use a judge from the same school as a speaker we have made sure the judge isn’t familiar with the student. We do have rubrics for the judges to ease their task and help maintain some consistency across judges. It would be useful for students to know what they should attend to.
