SEMDTA Judges enter their scores on a scoring tablet. The program sums automatically and delivers scores instantly to the director's office. Only in the event the internet goes down would a SEMDTA judge need to calculate their own scores and record them on hardcopy score sheets.
Judges receive hands-on training the night prior to a competition on how to use and enter scores on the tablet. A judge may have their secretary/scribe enter scores on the tablet to assist them.
