The following scorecard is for sousa_2-5-x-1 released on July 16, 2008. All evaluations were done by Mark Norton, the project leader of the Sousa Project.

The following evaluation methods are proposed for the scorecard items selected in the Scorecard BOF at the Ninth Sakai Conference in Paris, France. Please feel free to edit in place, add comments in other colors, or append comments below.

Note that point scales for individual items vary considerably. This is not a problem if we develop a weighting schemes when scores are rolled up into the four evaluation dimensions.
