THE JUDGING PROCESS: HOW IT WORKS
The Ganjamaica Cup is in its inauguration year and we are still refining our processes. For this year’s competition, Qualitative scores account for 40 percent of the total score. The participating judges will provide their expert professional evaluation on each entry and provide a score from 1-20 whereby 20 is the highest. Judges are not provided with identifiable information about the entry, as such the judges will provide their scores on each entry unanimously.
Quantitative score will account for the other 60 percent of the total score. This score sheet measures scientific data obtained from laboratory testing. The scores assigned is done by the Ganjamaica Cup Committee based solely on the results obtained.
Qualitative scores for each entry is then obtained and averaged. The Quantitative values are then assigned for a final score.
