Colleagues The University of Louisiana Lafayette Debate Program invites you to attend the Mardi Gras Policy Debate Tournament on February 12 through 15 2009 Our intent is to offer some Ragin Cajun hospitality and some good competition We have the tournament scheduled to encourage participation in Mardi Gras festivities You may want to arrive for the tournament on February 12 2010 We also suggest that you stay over Monday night in order to celebrate Fat Tuesday with us either in Lafayette or New Orleans A Humane Schedule We do not believe that tournament have to be death marches to victory When possible tournaments should strive to be more humane toward participants and more importantly to coaches Friday February 20th will be registration We encourage you to register early enough so that you may then attend the Friday night parade Saturday has three rounds beginning at 9 00 a m We will strictly enforce start times with forfeit rules Our goal is to have you out in time to watch the Bonaparte parade Sunday rounds also begin at 9 00 a m and we hope to end before 5 00 p m Monday elimination rounds begin at 10 00 a m Nuclear Blast Get Together In keeping with last year s support your local CAFO barbecue which featured hamburgers and homemade jambalaya we will again have a politically incorrect lunch and an off campus coaches reception Those who attended last year will attest that last year s hospitality lives up to Louisiana traditions Parades in Lafayette The schedule allows individuals time to attend the Lafayette Mardi Gras parades The Friday February 12 night parade begins at 6 30 p m The Saturday night Parade of Bonaparte begins at 6 30 p m Given that the parade route runs right by campus persons attending the tournament will merely have to walk fifty yards from their last debate round on Saturday to secure a prime bead catching location There are no parades in Lafayette on Sunday night However there are plenty of festivities throughout Lafayette to celebrate Monday s Queen of Evangeline Parade begins at 6 00 p m Mardi Gras really is a Louisiana official holiday and yes we really do get four days off from school to celebrate When we lived in Texas my wife was appalled to find out that other states did not recognize this holiday another affront to Cajun culture We look forward to seeing you this February Scott M Elliott Ph D J D

  • same tournament hotel and elimination round facilities that we will use for those tournaments We sincerely hope that you will attend our tournament this year as we would like to prepare the hotel for these tournaments Although the Cal team is well versed in running large debate tournaments the Oakland City Center Marriott is not so the more teams that attend the more realistic this test run will be I strongly urge you to stay at the Marriott This is an outstanding facility with excellent elimination round facilities I have managed to secure a tournament rate of 117 per night for up to 4 people per room We have a block of rooms and the block expires a month before the tournament begins You can make reservations now by calling 1 888 236 2427 and asking for the Cal Swing Debate Tournament rate MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS NOW Last year many people were squeezed out of the tournament hotel because they failed to make reservations in a timely manner The cutoff date for the event is December 1 and it is possible our block will be full before then Keep in mind that this is an urban hotel and you will be required to pay for parking The self parking rate is 22 per night and the valet rate is 26 per night Two changes to our traditional tournaments to note First we will be serving lunch on each of the prelim days in order to both expedite the schedule and to test out catering options for the NDT Our fee structure reflects this change Second in order to help folks defray costs we are going to offer an evidence and people shuttle service to and from campus This will allow you to avoid renting a car and incurring both rental and parking fees both of which can add up in Berkeley We will offer an evidence shuttle and shuttle service to and from campus for 30 per person per tournament Information about this service will be provided below in the invitation as well as via email as the tournament approachesl For general info about the hotel go to http www marriott com hotels travel oakdt oakland marriott city center We are pleased to be able to host a tournament at Berkeley If you have any questions or need any additional information please feel free to contact me Sincerely Greg Achten Tournament Director Co Director of Debate 818 357 8424 Transportation I strongly urge those flying to use Oakland International It is much closer to campus much easier to navigate and often much cheaper as it is served by discount carriers Southwest and JetBlue Directions to Hotel Transportation Information From Oakland International Airport Mileage 8 Miles Exit airport Take Hegenberger Rd to I 880 N Exit Broadway and turn right Go 3 blocks turn left on 10th St Make right turns around the block to hotel entrance Evidence People shuttling We can get you to and from campus for 30 per person per tournament There is also a BART train station right across the street from the hotel and one 5 minutes from campus if you wish to go back to the hotel early in the day You will be responsible for getting yourself to and from the airport I recommend two shuttle services Bayporter bayporter com or Super Shuttle supershuttle com Parking Parking in Berkeley is expensive and scarce We will have a limited number of parking permits available for sale for 25 each per tournament This is generally cheaper than you will find in Berkeley and much closer If you wish to order a parking permit or permits please email that request to me as soon as possible but by December 1 at the latest Campus Policies The Berkeley Campus is a smoke free campus There is no smoking in ANY building on campus PLEASE abide by this policy so that we may continue to use these facilities in subsequent years The Berkeley campus is also a drug and alcohol free campus Entry Information Online entry is required at www debateresults com Tab Room The tab room will be run by myself Greg Achten Jon Bruschke Becky Opsata and Glen Frappier Procedures Brackets will not be broken in elimination rounds and sides in elims will be determined by a coin flip between the opponents unless they met in the preliminary rounds Hybrids and mavericks will be allowed on a case by case basis and only in extraordinary circumstances Our tournament supports and adheres to the CEDA Anti Sexual Harassment Policy Divisions We will use the joint CEDA NDT policy topic We will offer Open any undergraduate meeting AFA eligibility requirements and Junior any undergraduate student that meets the CEDA definition of a JV debater and Novice any undergraduate in their first year of debate that meets the CEDA definition of a novice debater We reserve the right to collapse divisions if entries warrant In the Varsity division we will clear all 4 2 teams under the following conditions should entries warrant we will clear to a full double octo final assuming we have 64 entries in the division Absent that a partial double octo final round will be held ONLY if it would involve 8 teams or 4 debates In the event that fewer than 4 partial debates would occur we will cut 4 2 s on points and other tie breakers and will recognize teams not advancing at the awards ceremony Fees Fees will be 50 per person including judges and observers This will include breakfast and lunch each day or prelims Judging Each school is expected to provide 3 rounds of judging per team For each team beyond the first two we ask that schools provide 4 rounds of judging This is in line with the judging expectation at many other major national tournaments and we ask this to maximize our ability to place highly preferred judges in important debates Each judge will be obligated for through the octafinal or one round beyond the elimination of their team We have some hired judges that we can provide but not many Hired judges will be given on a first come first served basis at a fee of 150 per uncovered team We are not trying to make money on hired judges We would much rather have your judges than your money If you have extra judges available from your school please let me know as we would probably like to hire them We will use preference strike sheets for prelims and elims All judges are expected to render a decision within 2 hours and 45 minutes of the start time of the debate If a judge has failed to render their decision by this time the tab room will ask the judge to vote in the next minute If the judge fails to vote by this time the tab room will decide the debate through the flip of a coin This policy applies to preliminary rounds only Each judge must designate one and only one team as the winner of the debate We will use a 30 point scale Points may be awarded in full and half point increments only Questions If you need to get in touch with me please call or email Mobile 818

eDebate 87 Average JP Lacy wrote Quick summary Judges should figure out the community scale use it unless a tournament publishes other guidelines I m not a numbers person at all I m also struggling like everyone else with the 100 point scale My point assignment at GSU Kentucky was basically lousy My old scale You cheated 0 Rude 26 Below average 27 5 Average 28 Clearing 28 5 Getting a top 10 speaker award 29 Getting a very high speaker award 29 5 I know this scale is not optimal Its inflated compared to most judges but I don t like being a spoiler Just for fun I translated my old scale into a 100 point scale I used division to do it Translation of my old scale using math Below average 92 Average 93 Clearing 95 Getting a top 10 speaker award 97 Getting a very high speaker award 98 Ugh That scale is just as bad as the old broken 5 point scale 27 5 29 5 We all know the old scale isn t very good The important distinctions The ones between teams clearing not and the ones between the top speakers are basically statistical noise So the 100 point scale is better I m a fan of following the judging pool when it comes to points I don t think its fair to do otherwise That does not mean if you got good points before you get them from me That does mean if your debating in the round I judge you is top ten quality you get top ten points I eyeballed the Kentucky results came up with the following scale which seems to reflect where the community is going Below average 83 Depends Debaters are above average students Below average competitors don t need a point value to learn how much worse than mediocre they were unless they were rude or cheated Average 85 Clearing barely 87 Clearing high in your not undefeated bracket 90 Getting a top twenty speaker award 92 Getting a top ten speaker award 93 Getting a top five speaker award 94 Top Speaker 96 I won t say this is the proper scale I won t say it fixes all the problems with the old 30 point scale I will say that after 2 tournaments it is the one in use Out of fairness I ll stick to it adjust it according to how others use it if tournaments don t publish guidelines I m completely in favor of tournaments setting ground rules for the use of the scale It makes results more meaningful If a tournament publishes guidelines I ll follow them Bucking the instructions at a tournament just messes up the results JP Brian DeLong wrote Clearly the results from Kentucky show a large discrepancy between pockets of judges in how they are interpreting the 100 point scale Some people are on this 87 average boat while others place average at around 78 80ish I m no numbers game nor an expert on the history of point distribution etc but I do think more discussion on this scale should occur Reaching consensus is clearly impossible People are still going to fight the good fight against point inflation I would suggest that tournament providers include in their invites an interpretation of the scale to help bridge this present gap You will have judges that fight this interpretation and that s fine but for the rest of us who just want to make sure points are allocated fairly to the debaters it would be a great help to at least find a point of unity somewhere Without some point of consistent measurement to work off of we re going to continue to see some fairly decent judges being reduced on the pref sheets A counterargument to this is that maybe these anti point inflation crusaders aren t that great of judges to begin with in the first place Fair enough But for those of us who wish to stay in the realm of preferable judge whether we are good or not some baseline is needed Maybe it would be wise for us to vote on scales of measurement to set a norm for this community We have the ability to set up an informal or formal voting system This method would at least take the responsibility off a tournament host from arbitrarily choosing a baseline scale With that said I am on board with voting for a point system that looks like this 30 29 6 100 96 29 5 29 0 95 90 28 9 28 5 85 89 28 4 28 79 84 27 9 27 78 72 26 9 26 0 71 60 Thoughts To respond to number s games observations As Ross Smith once

who will share information publicly Right now that means posting stuff on the wiki Scouts need to eliminate their assumption that because someone is gathering cites it will be shared Often there are people who gather cites or read evidence for their own purposes after a debate This is fine but the time it takes them to read type cites trades off with those ready to do so for public consumption The needs of the community far outweigh their concerns As everyone is aware there are certain power dynamics involved in cite gathering Everyone should be aware of those dynamics make sure that scouting for squad only or private purposes is a much lower priority If a scout who won t agree to share is monopolizing pages try to figure out how to share with them or alert a debate judge Most judges will be willing to say that a scout who will share has priority 2 Scouts Honor Don t say you ll share when you won t Scouts have an obligation to get their stuff posted publicly as soon as they can After all its a shared resource If there are several people waiting on the info you are gathering obviously you should post it the moment you gather it Just sign up for the wiki edit it If someone is a bit slow getting your cites posted cut them some slack They probably lost the cites or forgot 3 Debaters Many of you want to share your cites exchange email addresses then forget to This is normal We need to get better at combating it If someone emails you for cites put them on the wiki instead It takes just as much time as email If you don t like posting to the wiki then email your stuff to me I ll take care of posting it when I have time If you get cites from someone put them on the wiki If you make an argument that someone finds cite gathering worthy then try to help them save time by using your own electronic files 4 Other Protocol Issues If a debater says you can have our cites if you put it on the wiki you should do so Its called a deal Maybe a contract I ve heard of some disagreements about this that could have been avoided if the people who agreed to post publicly would have followed through Just do it right away or email your stuff to me I ll get it posted No guarantee that I ll get it done fast enough to satisfy others What is the reason for all of this Because closed scouting is worse for debate than open scouting Closed scouting benefits the resource rich Open scouting can make every debate better How do I sign up for the wiki Easy Go to opencaselist wikispaces com click the join link in the upper right hand corner JP lacyjp at wfu edu From

discussion surrounding the 100 point scale a theoretical 87 point average and judge variance has been a valuable one Inevitably any change creates a period of disequilibration which is arguably a good thing in a learning system Most of the conversation about variance has focused on anecdotal anomalies where some judges consciously or unconsciously set different means The data from Kentucky confirms that these anomalies are indeed real and that judges did apparently approach the task with different interpretations of the mean The data below arrays the results for each judge in the pool that judged at least one prelim round But before we conclude too much let me offer a couple of caveats First the assumption of the comparison and the one that z scores are based on is that every judge being compared viewed a statistically similar sample of all of the rounds in the tournament That is demonstrably false Second many of the judges represented judged too small a sample to draw any reliable conclusions about their point assignment practices Third distributions are just that A judge who consistently gives 27 5 s on the 30 point scale is just as much an outlier as the judge who on average assigns 80 s in the distribution below even though it doesn t LOOK like as big an anomaly All that said it really should be a goal that critics who are observing exactly the same event although that only happens at the NDT should be assigning comparable scores to that event In that case inter rater reliability is only achieved if we have some commonly held rubrics for how to reward and punish debate performances in addition to shared interpretations of the scale but I suspect that this is a core issue about which we DON T have a community consensus But we also need to remember that with single judge panels critics NEVER observe the same events even if two critics judge exactly the same subset of teams during the course of a tournament Every debate is formally an n of 1 While we can and should agonize about whether scoring systems are better or worse about creating norms while preserving discrimination and necessary variability there is no such thing as the Holy Grail Avg Std n 75 75 3 30 4 77 88 4 63 16 78 94 4 28 16 79 25 4 09 12 79 38 6 48 16 79 50 5 04 8 79 50 5 15 8 80 13 3 05 16 80 50 2 94 12 80 54 3 78 24 80 58 4 56 12 81 00 3 66 8 81 00 1 83 4 81 50 6

take place on Saturday Rounds 1 4 are preset and released by 5pm the Friday beforehand Round 5 is high high and paired off of only rounds 1 3 the pairing for round 5 would be released during round 4 Some basic assumptions of my model 1 There are not enough high high debates at tournaments More high high debates would produce more of the top level head to head matches that determine bid sheets and drive innovation by forcing teams to bust strategies and research new ones give on the cusp teams a bit of breathing room if you speak poorly some high high rounds give you a reprieve from a constant beat down the current system is too one sided eliminate some of the damage that having a large number of presets has on borderline teams by reducing the likelihood of getting jacked by having to debate a few top level teams in the presets and then win several break rounds in a row that are high low in your bracket 2 Debaters are given way to much pre round prep everyone goes for the same crap anyway the health care disad and cap K are highlighted already you don t need an hour to get ready for them Also releasing pairings earlier allows debaters to take advantage of the post round dead time waiting for a decision to prep more for later debates 3 More prelims are better people get more practice who should clear becomes clearer etc 4 Opponent wins should be more important in deciding who clears than speaker points there I said it The speaker point system is broken This is a team activity Especially with more high high debates which I have already conclusively proven is a moral obligation 5 Judges need to run a tighter ship stop prep stealing and time wasting enforce start times etc Debaters waste time because they are allowed too If the choice is between losing a debate or punishing teams who are too lazy and stupid to be efficient it is ridiculous to take away a debate A strict schedule creates incentives for efficiency by rewarding teams who are well organized and work hard How long does a round take 92 minutes Assume at least 10 minutes for screwing around brings us to 102 If each round is given 2 15 that is 135 minutes leaving over 1 2 an hour for making a decision You could even add another 15 minutes on there and that would only lengthen the day by an hour This would mean the schedule would could look like I have added an extra 10 minutes for travel time and extra time for lunch and dinner discussed below Round 1 7 45 Round 2 10 10 Round 3 1 15 Round 4 3 40 Round 5 6 45 This gets everyone out around 9 Day 2 Round 6 8 00 Round 7 10 30 Round 8 2 30 Doubles 6 00 Round 6 and 7 should be paired off round 5 and have one high low and one high high The pairing should be released at 6am Since you get out at roughly 9 you should be able to eat and get to sleep by 10 or 11 giving you 7 8 hours of sleep if you decide to get up at 6 and start prepping If you want to sleep in you can obviously get more sleep but this is a pretty good amount to get considering you would get 2 hours to prep for rounds 6 and 7 Round 8 is obviously important so there is a lot of extra prep built in for this If a strict decision time is enforced all the round 7 ballots should be in by 12 45 Giving people 1 2 hour for lunch that means they will still get about an hour to prep for potential break rounds Finally opp wins should be more important than speaker points in determining who clears The main objection to pairing more rounds ahead of time is we ll get screwed Using opponent wins helps take the bite out of this argument and opposition to high high rounds It also allows time to figure out the 100 point scale while only speaker awards are affected Some of this may seem pretty radical unworkable but a fundamental assumption is that time is wasted because there are no incentives to not waste it A strict schedule forces debaters to chose between focusing on competitive gain or other aspects of debate like socializing etc true but this is already a trade off in many other ways Top ways time is wasted at tournaments now that would be pressured to reform by judges and debaters 1 Cleaning up people don t do it until after the decision throw evidence all over the room during debates so they are later unable to find it etc 2
