General User Proposal Scores Print

Scoring

Proposals are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being the best score and 5 the worst. Reviewers are requested to use the following ranking schema:

  1. Must do
  2. High Priority
  3. Medium Priority
  4. Low priority
  5. Don’t do

Beam time is assigned based on each proposal's score in relation to all other proposals for a given beamline. For beamlines where beam time requests  exceed available beam time, a cutoff score is assigned after which no beam time is allocated.

 

Beam Time Cutoff Scores for the Current Cycle (2015-1 Jan-Jun)

The table below lists the percent of beam time shifts allocated/requested for each beamline and the cutoff scores after which no beam time was assigned.
