NDA & Peer Review Answers!

Hi everyone!
We just wanted to take a moment to clarify some questions that have come up with the NDA & Peer Reviews.
1) Q: My NDA is blank or I cannot fill it out. Will it be accepted?
A: Yes! If you could not enter information into the blanks of the NDA, do not worry. Your submission of the NDA indicates your acceptance and participation in the peer review process.

2)Q: I only received one set of entries to peer review, will I receive another?
A: No. It was originally intended that you only have one set of submissions to peer review. If you have received a second set and already provided feedback, this will not impact your scores. If you only received one set, do not worry about receiving a second! Each submitter is only required to provide feedback on ONE set of submissions.

3) Q: I received more than 5 submissions in my peer review, how do I score these?
A: If you received a set of 6 entries instead of 5, you may assign the same value to more than one entry, but only once.

Please let us know if you have additional questions by commenting on this thread, sending us a message on HeroX, or by emailing us at Challenge@nrel.gov

What happens if we have the wrong NDA attached to our peer review? Our NDA is for a judge because it asks if we have a vested interest or related to a contestant. We are a participant and signing this NDA will violate this trust.

I have been asked to complete a mandatory peer review, however no entries have been assigned to me. How should I proceed?

Hi Mark, only the team captain will receive the peer review entries. If you are a team captain and have not received the entries to proceed, and have followed the instructions, please email us at challenge@nrel.gov.
Instructions can be found here: https://www.herox.com/solarprizeround2/resource/364

After ranking, I just see the rankings on a page. Is there an additional step to further submit? Thank you

Hi Joe, if you see the rankings on the page, that means it has been submitted. I just checked, and it looks like we have received your peer review scores.

Hi Moderator,

Since we received 6 entries, we thought the ranking was individualized..ie 1-5 for each submission. I just read where we should only have one score doubled..

My entry for the solar prize round 2 does not show up anymore. Is it contained somewhere on the site? Thank you Joe Byles team

I am trying to upload Go! entry items for the round 2 American made solar challenge. I cannot find the entry form or the page with my team info. Where can I find it on the site?

Thanks
