If your judges are in one physical location (such as at an in-person hackathon), you may prefer to have them score submissions using paper and a pencil, as opposed to using Devpost's judging platform. This article will explain how judges can score submissions manually using our printed score sheets.
Printing score sheets
The score sheet lists every submission that is visible in the gallery and that has been marked Judge in the Submissions tab (see the article). To print these sheets, visit the manager dashboard for your hackathon, select Manage Hackathon > Judging/Voting. You will see a button labeled Print judging Sheets. Clicking this button will bring you to a new page with the score sheet. Print one copy per judge.
The hackathon judging criteria are listed under each of the submissions on the score sheet. There is also space for the judge to provide additional notes.
If a submission is missing from the score sheet, revisit the Submissions tab in the manager dashboard and ensure that the submission in question is 1) visible in the gallery (marked with the green eyeball icon) and 2) has been marked Judge. Check out this helpful article on Managing Submissions.
The scale you use to rate submissions is up to you, but we recommend that each criterion be rated on a scale of 1-5 (with 1 as the lowest rating and 5 as the highest rating).
