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 beamtime requests  exceed available beamtime,  a cutoff score is assigned after which no beam time is allocated.

Beam Time Cutoff Scores for the Current Cycle
The table below lists the percent of beam time shifts allocated/requested for each beamline, and the cutoff scores, below which no beam time was assigned.
