If you are interested in helping score projects for the IVSS 2021, we would love your help! Please fill out the form below to volunteer to score projects for the 2021 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS). 

Scoring Projects: The scoring period will occur between 29 March and 5 April 2021. We need assistance scoring all of the student projects after they have been submitted (we received over 260 submissions last year!) and greatly appreciate help from our volunteer judges. Scoring takes anywhere from one to several hours (depending on how much time you are able to commit). Each project typically takes around 20-30 minutes to assess.You can choose how many projects you would like to score, but in order to receive a certificate for your work - you will need to score a minimum of three projects and submit them by the scoring due date. We will have an informational webinar about scoring the projects (which will be recorded) on 29 March at 09:00 am MT (click here at the time of the webinar to join!) and then judging will take place between 29 March - 5 April 2021. Time management during the judging period is up to each individual judge. Judging consists of filling out a Google form with your scores and feedback for the student(s) while adhering to rubrics provided from our program.  

We are hopeful that STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professionals, GLOBE alumni, teachers, graduate students, and other interested community members will volunteer to assist scoring the projects, and we hope to work with you! (Note - you do not need a GLOBE account to score projects.) The students greatly appreciate receiving feedback on their projects in order to improve as researchers and life-long learners.

For more information, please check out out judging one-pager.  We also encourage you to share this document with anyone who may be interested in judging!

Please note: In order to receive a certificate and have your name listed in the 2021 GLOBE Annual Meeting agenda, you will need to score a minimum of 3 projects by the judging due date (05 April 2021).
