14.36. Scoring

This tab is in the Sport Setup tab.

The Scoring tab is used to define the scoring systems available for use in a Meet.

Scoring is defined in two tables: ScoringSystems and ScoringRules.

The ScoringSystems table defines the different available scoring systems. It contains one row for each available scoring system.

The ScoringRules tables defines the set of rules that make up the scoring system. Each rule specified how many points are received for specified values of important attributes, such as finishing place.

14.36.1. Systems Sheet

The Systems Sheet tab allows you to edit the information about multiple ScoringSystems on one page.

To edit a set of ScoringSystems, press the "Search" button. A list of ScoringSystems will appear just below the buttons.

All columns except for the first column (ID) can be edited.

To add a new Scoring Rule, push the Add button. This will add a new row to the end of the editing sheet and scroll the sheet to the end. All fields in the new row will be blank. After you have filled in values for all required fields (name) an ID will be generated and the values in that row will be stored in the database.

For more details on how to use the Systems Sheet, see the section on Sheets.

14.36.2. Query and Edit Tabs

  • The ID field is the unique ID for this Site. The default ID prefix is ScR.

  • The System field is the Scoring System to which this rule applies.

  • The Rule field is the name of the rule type for this record. It must be one of the following keywords: place, group.

  • The Value field is the value of the rule property for which the specified number of points are given. For example, a value of 1 for a "place" rule means first place, 2 means second place, etc. For a "group" rule, the value is the size of the group.

  • The Points field is the number of points that are awarded to a Lane that satisfies this rule.

All columns except for the first column (ID) can be edited.

To add a new Scoring Rule, push the Add button. This will add a new row to the end of the editing sheet and scroll the sheet to the end. All fields in the new row will be blank.
