    Article on Running Tournaments

    A few mathematically inspired ideas on running tab more efficiently and fairly, in the National Journal of Speech and Debate. I'm happy to clarify or provide details for programming software if anyone is curious. Cheers!

    Why we're doing side assignment wrong

    I did a bit of math on it, and holy smokes, we're making it way harder to pair prelims than it has to be. http://art-of-logic.blogspot.com/2018/05/why-debate-tournaments-have-been-doing.html
  4. Hi everyone! My partner and I go to a school that doesn't compete nationally, and we would really like to attend some this year. We have heard that you can fake your way into some Texas tournaments like UT- do any tournaments actually let you sign up? Thanks!

    Logit score

    I wrote an article on the logit score, which is a new way of rating/ranking debate teams at tournaments. Click here for more info on what the logit score is, how it works, and to get the link to the article.

    Experiment on pairing methods

    I ran an experiment to see how well power matching revealed teams' true strength. You can read the results, but in summary, high-low power matching did well (but not much better than median speaker points) at revealing true strength. High-high power matching did an awful job, worse than random pairings.

    Speaks at Nationals

    What is the general range of speaker points at big-stick national tournaments like Greenhill and Glenbrooks. I understand speaks vary depending on the (level of difficulty of the) tournament, but is there an accepted range that judges follow? Note: This is specific to national tournaments, I know basic stuff like thirties don't happen and a twenty-five means you're a terrible person/ debater; 29 is pretty high/ really good, 29.5 is excellent/ not much you can change; just curious as to other debaters' experiences. Also, why are none of the useful, unanswered questioned asked on this site :/ Get rid of flood control on the search bar and half the questions disappear because they've been asked before...
