Grant Application Scoring Rubric
Just curious to know how you all score your grant applications. We have specific questions on our application that are worth up to a certain number of points and displayed on the application for applicants to see the weight of that question. The Board then scores the responses to get a total score for an application, which then ultimately determines how much they award an application. The problem? They are scoring but don't know what they are looking for when scoring. It doesn't make sense to me to implement a scoring system if you have no rubric to guide how you score each question.
So, my question to you all, what are you currently using to score your applications? Do you even use scoring to guide your decisions? Just looking for recommendations on best practices because I prefer to implement a rubric for our Board to use but not getting much support to do so because "it's always been done this way and we don't want to overcomplicate the process."
Thanks in advance for your input!
