I have seen in the past other topics like this but I have always wondered why RECF has stopped allowing feedback for notebooks. This is my 6th and last year doing robotics and at our state championship our notebook, and others similar to it were put to the side and we did not qualify for an interview. What we do not understand is why this happened. Three of these teams have won excellence multiple times this year including myself. I would not be so upset about it if we were able to learn why we got DQ’d. For a foundation that promotes learning over the competition I do not understand the notion that we cannot see what the judges had to critique on our notebooks. It does not seem to parallels other learning environments such as
When writing up a report or paper many of our teachers allow us to submit drafts to them or have them check our paper and give feedback
After taking a test or any assignment after it is graded we are allowed to see it again with corrections that our teachers made for use as study material for tests or finals
There are more examples of this give and response learning system and it just baffles me why it was dropped from judging.
TLDR why don’t we receive feedback anymore from judges
