 All Odyssey scores given by the officials are “raw” scores. Long-Term raw scores may be any number up to 200 (before penalties). Style scores may be any number up to 50. Spontaneous raw scores may be any number at all (depending on the problem and the scoring criteria.) Raw scores are then “scaled” (sort of like curving grades.) A TEAM'S SCORE MEANS ALMOST NOTHING BY ITSELF — a score of 120 out of 200 might be the highest or the lowest score of the day. A team won't know how it compares with others until scores are posted after the awards ceremony! Teams will also not know the their spontaneous score until scores are posted: the team is not told its score after they compete in spontaneous. Long-term scores are given to the coach by the Head Judge approximately 1 -2 hours after a team's Long-Term performance. The head judge should explain the scores and answer any questions. The coach will initial the sheet to verify he or she received the scores. All Odyssey scores given by the officials are “raw” scores.
