Exam Grading
The examination and grading procedures for the JO exams have been organized to ensure fair and transparent evaluation. Upon arrival for the exam, each participant will be assigned a number by the test administrator. The test administrator is neutral and unaffiliated. Examinees will write only their assigned number (no names) on all test materials. The test administrator will send the list of participants with their numbers to the National Judges Representative. All exam materials will be graded in the USA Gymnastics office. Once grading has been completed, the list of results by participant number will be sent to the National Judges Representative who will match them up with corresponding names and distribute results. This procedure creates a system of checks and balances throughout the examination and grading process, providing examinees with anonymity and confidentiality.
