We offer a number Multi/banding points options, this article covers them both in the following headings:
- Alberta Youth Points
- IAAF Formula (multi & pentathlon points)
- Performance Bands Points
- Event Points
- Linear Performance Levels (LPL)
Alberta Youth Points
The Alberta Youth points structure is available in ResultsHQ.
Events that this is set up for
To activate it follow these steps:
1. Go to Setup - Points
2. Go to Alberta points
3. Apply the points table to your profile if it's not already applied...note if it already applied you see points in this screen already
4. Apply the Alberta Template
5. Go to Events - Calculate -
- Choose to apply the Alberta to your given date/s
- Calculate points
- Do zero points check to make sure all results have points
- Go to the leaderboard to see your points totals
- Print certificates from the day.
IAAF Formula (multi & pentathlon points)
We have used this IAAF points structure but have replaced the seniors IAAF points values with the NSW Multi Points values. To see what age/gender/events the ResultsHQ template covers click here
FYI for more information on points and calculating check out Points Overview
To load these values follow these steps:
1. Go to Setup - Points
2. Click on the Multipoints button
3. Then click on the Use Points Template
4. Then click on Apply for the IAAF. Note the Alberta and Banding options are only applied to the Banding points method, not the to IAAF points method.
5. When you go back to your Multipoints page you will now see all the values loaded in from the template. You can edit and delete these if need be.
6. Now go to Events - calculate
7. Tick on the IAAF tick boxes for the dates required
More IAAF Information
If you wish to use the IAAF points as they were originally intended then please read further below.
Please have a read of the attached document which outlines how the IAAF points methodology works, in particular pages 24 and 25.
Note: You can load any a,b,c value that you like for each event. If you would like us to load the exact IAAF points variables as in the attached document then please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
The points variables are loaded per age group, so it is possible to have different variables per age group per event

FORMULAE FOR IAAF COMBINED EVENTS SCORING SYSTEM
For a given performance, the point score (P) is calculated using one of the following equations:
Track events P=a*(b - T)**c [where Tis Time in seconds; e.g. 10.43 for 100 metres]
Jumps P=a*(M - b)**c [where M is Measurement in centimetres; e.g. 808 for "LJ".]
Throws P=a*(D - b)**c [where D is Distance in metres; e.g. 16.69 for Shot]
a, b and c are parameters whose values are listed below. * is the mathematical sign meaning "multiplied by ", and ** is the mathematical sign meaning "raised to the power of".
Note: The value of P (points) must be rounded down to a whole number after calculation (e.g. 123.999 becomes 123).
PARAMETERS (constants for each event)
NOTE: Points for manual times in events up to 400 metres are calculated either by adding the standard adjustment factor to the time (i.e. 0.24 sec. for events below 400 metres, 0.14 sec. for 400 metres) or by subtracting the factor from the "b" parameter. There are no adjustments for events above 400 metres.
Example (100m Men):
10.40 (auto) for 100m is calculated as P=25.4347*(18.00 - 10.40)**1.81 = 999
10.4 (manual) for 100m is calculated either as P=25.4347*(18.00 - 10.64)**1.81 = 942 or as P=25.4347*(17.76 - 10.4)**1.81 = 942
