WHEN? Three Saturdays in November, January, and February and a Friday in April at the state competition.

WHY? The primary purpose of evaluation is to provide students and coaches with feedback to develop and improve their problem solving skills. Evaluation is authentic assessment of student thinking using specific criteria for each step of the problem solving process. We work hard to make evaluation fair, consistent, and reliable. Evaluators gain a strong grasp of problem solving skills and a respect for what students can accomplish through FPS. And WE PAY!

HOW? We train evaluators on site in November and January. You will:

   1) Review some material ahead of time

   2) Receive instruction from a master evaluator

   3) Work with a mentor to evaluate a booklet together

   4) Evaluate a booklet independently and compare your work with your

       mentor's evaluation of the same booklet

   5) Evaluate 1-3 booklets independently with your mentor available for

       questions.
