The matrix below is used to grade Scouts after a training hike. We use a matrix to ensure a consistent grading is used by all our adult volunteers.

We grade the Scouts for a number of reasons…

  1. Enables us to focus on a Scout’s weaker areas for the next hike
  2. Enable to create stronger teams with the right mix of skills
  3. It’s used if we are oversubscribed for training and/or the event alongside other factors such as attendance to training hikes.
