F Standard Grade Calculation
Grading Date as at:- 5 April 2014.
For a Tasmanian Queens the National Cut-off point for A Grade of 94.5% will be used for all competitors.
When a Tasmanian Competitor enters in an Interstate Queens, the National Cut-off point of 94.5% should also be used.
When Tasmanian Competitors enter other Prize Meetings around the State the Cut-Off point for A Grade of 93.4% will be used.
This lower cut-off point is used so that there will be a reasonable spread within the Grades.
The present Tasmanian Cut-off point of 93.4% is under constant review as scores and abilities improve.
See below the Table of Grades for an explanation of how the Grading System works:-
The present Cut-off score in Tasmania is: 93.40%
The Present National Cut-off Score is:- 94.50%
|Grade using||Grade using|
|NRAA Cut-Off||TRA Cut-off|
|Prize||Using||A = 94.5||A = 93.4|
|Meets||Last||B = <94.5||B =<93.4|
The system used for F Class Grading takes into account (to some degree) the weather conditions prevailing on any particular day as well as the Range difficulty - because all scores used for Grading are directly related to the TOP SCORE OF THE DAY, irrespective of whether it is recorded by an A or B Grade shooter.
All scores in all Open Competitions and ALL DISTANCES are used to calculate the Grading.
In Multiple Day Competitions each day's aggregate is used for grading purposes. For Example:- in a full Queens program of 5 days (2 days Lead-up and 3 days Queens, there will be 5 aggregates counted. Lead-up and Queens Aggregates do not count.
Simply it is this ----- (say a three range shoot with 180 being the possible)
Shooter A scores ---- 176 = 100% (top score)
Shooter B scores ---- 176 = 100% (top score)
Shooter C scores ---- 173 = 98.295% ----------- 173/176 x 100 = 98.295%
Shooter D scores ---- 170 = 96.590% ----------- 170/176 x 100 = 96.590%
Shooter E scores ---- 160 = 90.910% ----------- 160/176 x 100 = 90.910%
And so on:-
We use the last 8 Prize Meeting scores to arrive at the final average, which is the average of the last 8 scores. There are no cut outs. If 8 scores are not available, as many as possible are used. The cut-off point may be varied from time to time by a State Grading Officer in order to keep a reasonable balance between A and B Grades.
