Combine Scores

Each review can have any number of critera questions that can be weighted and combined in a number of ways.

Scores can be combined for a single review and also combined for a single submission.

This flexibility enables Firebird to collect and summarise the right data for fast and effective decision making.

Scores can be combined in many different ways including:
  • Sum
  • Mean
  • Mode
  • Median
  • Standard Deviation
  • Tally


In this example, a submission has 3 reviews and each review collects scores for two criteria (Technical Merit and Relevance of Topic) plus a recommendation from the reviewer:

Review 1

Question Score
Technical Merit 10
Relevance of Topic 2
Recommendation Accept

Review 2

Question Score
Technical Merit 8
Relevance of Topic 3
Recommendation Accept

Review 3

Question Score
Technical Merit 4
Relevance of Topic 3
Recommendation Reject

The reviews could have a total score and mean score calculated for them and the submission could have a mean score and Recommendation Tally:

Combined Scores

Combined Score Review 1 Review 2 Review 3
Total Score 12 11 7
Average Score 6 5.5 3.5


Combined Score Value
Technical Merit Mean 7.33
Relevance of Topic Mean 2.67
Recommendation Tally Accept x 2, Reject x 1

The summary information in the submission can then be used for fast and effective decision making.
