We adjudicate productions and performances based on our own set of rubrics. They are geared to evaluating the storytelling skills shown in the production and by the individuals we evaluate.
The forms we use have two parts. The first page is the scoring sheet. That is an internal form. We do not share scores with schools or nominees, just as the Tony Awards do not share the numbers of votes each nominee gets.
The second page is the evaluation each of our adjudicators complete. We send those to the drama teachers of participating schools. To see our rubrics, download a copy (below) of the blank evaluation forms we use for the production as a whole and for individuals registered with our program.
