The Debate Judge as Debate Judge: A Functional Paradigm for Evaluating Debates.
Rowland, Robert C.
Journal of the American Forensic Association, v20 n4 p183-93 Spr 1984
Identifies the purpose of academic debate (to teach students argumentative skills) and the characteristics that a debate paradigm must have to fulfill that purpose. Takes a functional view of the debate judge as one who judges argumentative practices, not one who decides policy issues as would a real-world decision maker. (PD)
