1.0 This season it is extremely important for the Technical Panel to carefully review the application of the Key Point levels in Novice Pattern Dance. Currently the software does not verify the level for Key Points in Novice Pattern Dance. This means that if a Key Point is identified and entered incorrectly, there is no indication on the screen to the Technical Controller that an error has been made. For example, if the panel identifies “CC1Se1 Yes Yes Yes Level 2”, the computer will accept this even though the correct call is Level 4. In this case the Technical Controller must instruct the Data Operator to manually make the correction.
