7. ICDC TRANSCRIPTS AVAILABLE UNTIL…?

When asked how long the ICDC transcripts will be available for download, DECA Inc. couldn’t give us a definitive date.

- Be sure to obtain these as soon as possible, if you and your students are interested, so you don’t miss out. There is no cost.

- Advisors can obtain their chapter’s transcripts by logging in to the membership system. Click on the conferences tab, then high school ICDC registration and student transcripts. This will automatically download all transcripts for your chapter.

- Scores are “normalized” in these transcripts. Normalization is a statistical process allowing for the comparison of different datasets (i.e., sections) in a way that eliminates the effects of certain influences (i.e., different judges). Scores are reported as if participants were all evaluated by the same judge, when in fact they were not.

- Click on the sample event transcripts below to see how to decipher the transcripts.
