    Use of evidence: 2.6 5
    Delivery skill: 2.4 4.5
    Coherence of arguments: 2.9 3.7
    Responsiveness to opponent: 2.6 3.9
    Identification of key points: 2.1 3.8
    Comments: You need to prioritize arguments better. You try to respond to every argument, but you need to do much more to weigh arguments and explain which ones matter most.

    Also, you need to do a much better job with research. Your sources are not peer-reviewed for the most part and most of them are biased. You should try to use more credible sources.
    You are too structured for a public debate. I think you have excellent arguments and should focus more on those arguments and use less jargon.

    You do a good job carrying arguments forward during the debate.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Kara Brown

    Reason for Decision:

    I think the negative does a much better job detailing how we measure ethics. Her argument that ethics are relative sets a clear criteria for the debate.

    Also, the negative has much strong evidence and uses it much better.

    Great effort from both sides!!
