If you judge a poster by a student for the 2014
Spring Research Festival, we
encourage you to follow the below guidelines to ensure the most productive outcome.
This guidance is intended
to ensure that students learn the most from their experience of presenting a
poster at the festival.
- Students are to be personally interviewed about their posters. They should be
asked in some depth about the research
they are presenting. Note: this is not required or expected for any other
posters presented at the Spring Research
- Feedback about the poster itself should be provided directly to the student. You
are not requested to directly
comment on the science behind the poster (although constructive ideas are
always welcome), rather we want students
to get feedback on their general poster presentation (e.g. is it too crowded
with data, is the abstract too long,
is it lacking conclusions, etc).
This document will allow you to record your scores while in the Spring Research
Festival Tent so that you can
later input your results into the online system. Please print one score sheet
per assigned poster and be prepared
to judge a Poster Presenters work during the allotted time. This will ensure
that all posters get scored in a
timely manner and the process runs smoothly. Thank you for your participation.
Judges must submit scores by Friday, May 16th.

Presenters score. Please
review this document before judging any posters. We suggest you print out a

Note: Due to the number of posters, poster presenters should not expect to be personally
interviewed by the judges,
unless they are a student.
