Single Student Team Follow-Up

Hello,
in Q&A 1592 the CJC stated that:

Teams that consist of a single student are not able to demonstrate teamwork and communication skills within their team. As such, they would fall into the Emerging category for the Team Interview Rubric for the Teamwork, Communication, Professionalism Criteria.

However, in the September 1st 2023 update to the Guide To Judging, the Team Interview Rubric was significantly modified. The text for the Teamwork, Communication, Professionalism section now reads:

Expert:
Most or all team members contribute to explanations of the design process, game strategy, and other work done by the team.
Proficient:
Some team members contribute to explanations of the design process, game strategy, and other work done by the team.
Emerging:
Few team members contribute to explanations of the design process, game strategy, and other work done by the team.

Given that the wording of the criteria for this section and other sections has now been significantly modified from when the ruling in Q&A 1592 was made, can the CJC please provide new guidance for judging Single-Student teams based on the new criteria?

Thank you.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention - we have modified our original response for Q&A #1592, as the language in the Guide to Judging has changed and the original response is no longer relevant.
