Meeting ID: 853 8911 6653

Extemp questions will be provided for all speakers in this virtual Extemp Prep Room.

Please make sure extemp students go to the extemp prep room at the time of Extemp Draw on the schedule.

Students do need to make themselves known to the extemp proctor before leaving the room, but they do not need to stay in that room after receiving their assigned speaker questions.

The extemp proctor will post the questions into the chat window at the specified time.

Just a reminder if you have students in extemp who are also double entered in pattern A, to go to the extemp prep room at the start of prep, and make sure to prioritize performing their extemp first before their other event.

Thank you!

Judging Training Instructions

We encourage judges who are new to judging (or ones that would like a refresher) to view the following video from 2020 tournament’s virtual judge training (the run time is almost 90 minutes). However, there are explanations of every event so you can feel free to watch the events that are most relevant to you.

The video begins with general tab room/judging instructions and then is followed by debate event explanations. Explanations of judging the various Individual Events begins at about 48:40.***(see below for changes to IEs since this video)

Additional judge instructions will be made available for download on the Tournament’s main page (links are on the right side under “Tournament Pages & Forms”).

***There are a couple of changes to IEs since this training video:

1. Duo competitors can either compete with separate cameras OR be in the same room competing. Please do not let this affect your preference when judging, as their ability to compete in the same room might be limited due to COVID restrictions and they can't help that :)

2. If a competitor's connection cuts out, there's no 10-minute restriction on reconnecting--the guideline is 45 minutes from the start of the round, or if they can reasonably get their speech in before the round ends. If they still aren't reconnecting, judge the part you did watch of their speech.

As always, don't spend time helping the student reconnect--direct them to this homepage to go to the gmail or one of the zoom rooms for help so you can keep the round going. Do wait just a minute to see if they will pop back in but if they don't, move on to the next student, and once they come back, then let them finish their speech. Your priority is to make sure the round is running on time, and our priority is to make sure they get the help they need :)
