The draft judging rubric is list below. There are four criterion the judges will be looking at. They are Problem Definition, Solution Design & Innovation, Idea Viability and Does it work. Each of them is weighted equally.
|Criterion||Points||Criterion detail||Rubric details|
|Problem Definition||40||How precise and relevant is the real world problem or opportunity? How interesting or difficult to resolve – functionally or technically – is the problem being challenged? For this criterion, we only focus on the problem challenged, not on the solution created to solve this problem.||1: Problem is not defined, relevant 20: Problem is loosely defined, basically relevant 40: Well defined, relevant|
|Solution Design & Innovation:||40||Does the application approach a new problem, or look at an old problem in a new way? Is the solution completely innovative or does it rely on an existing concept/technology? Does the application impact a large number of people very broadly, or impact a smaller number of people very deeply? To which degree does the application actually solve the current problem?||1: not so much, 20: good, 40 impressive solution|
|Idea Viability||40||Is the application technically and marketplace viable? Would people use this product? Is this solution only theoretical or does it have a realistic application for commercial purposes? (Not necessarily here and now, but eventually in the future and/or for certain markets).||1: not so much, 20: good, 40 impressive|
|Does it work||40||Does the application have ether a board horizontal prototype demonstrating lots of functionality at high level or deep vertical prototype with deep functionality in one area.||1: not functional, 20: fair functional, 30: very functional, 40 exceptionally functional|
