WSDC 2013 – Preliminary Team Tab


As with previous years, teams are ranked based on their total wins, total ballots and then speaker scores. This is merely a ‘preliminary’ team tab in that the final rankings also account for performance in the out-rounds.

As some of the debates did not actually occur for various reasons, the ordinary method of ranking by total speaker scores could not work given that the total would be skewed against those who didn’t do a full set of 8 debates. Thus, the CAP appear to have averaged speaker scores over the number of debates done by each team to reach the total.

Note that each adjudicator can award a maximum of 350 points to a team (100 for 3 speakers and 50 for the summary). Thus the average for each round is capped at 1,050. In reality, the WSDC Adjudicator’s Guide suggests 70 as the median speech, the average should be 735. 30 of the 50 teams were considered to be above the average.
