Event Points

This points scoring method will cause a linear / straight line calculation to be applied to your results. Each Event / Age group / Gender needs to be set up individually. 
Unlike the 'Linear' points method, a minimum result is applied but a maximum is not. Instead an result 'increment' is determined which will result in a set number of points. Minimum and maximum points are also determined. 

100m event, U10 Boys
  • Minimum result that points will be allocated for (worst result which will receive points): 30.0 (seconds)
  • An Incremental result is determined: 0.5 (seconds)
  • Points for each increment are determined: 5 (points)
  • Minimum Points: The points that will be applied to the the Minimum results, for instance 0 (zero) (this to be applied to 30.0 seconds and slower)
  • Maximum Points: The points that will be applied to the the Maximum result, for instance 100 (this to be applied to the best result of 15.0 seconds)

In the above example:
  • A result of 30 seconds will receive 0 points
  • A result of 29.5 seconds will receive 5 points
  • Since a maximum has been set in this case of 100 points, the maximum points will be reached after 20 incrementals (100 points / 5 points)
  • Since 20 equates to 10 seconds (20 x 0.5 seconds), the maximum points will be reached at 20 seconds (30 seconds - 10 seconds).

To set up the points

1. From within your ResultsHQ profile, slect Settings from the top right of screen

5. A form will display such as below for you to begin setting up your first Event configuration.
- Enter the Gender, Age, and Event that you would like to create a points allocation for. 
- Then enter the Minimum Performance/Result, and the Incremental Amount (the increase/decrease in result that will cased a Points Increment)
- Enter the Minimum and Maximum Points, as well as the Increment Point
6. Press Save for the changes to take effect
7. A row will be created in the Event Points table with the details that you entered
