GoE: Also GOE. Abbreviation for Grade of Execution.
Grade of Execution: A mark for an individual element under the International Judging System that designates the overall quality of execution of the element, taking into account both its strengths and weaknesses, and its conformance to the rules. Each judge assigns a GoE mark for each executed element in a program. Abbreviated GoE or GOE.
The GoE mark is specified using the eleven integers from -5 through +5, including 0. These GoE marks, however, are not the point values a skater accumulates for the element. Each GoE mark has an associated value that is tabulated in a table of values known as the Scale of Values. The five negative GoE marks have negative GoE values, the five positive GoE marks have positive GoEvalues, and a GoE mark of zero has a GoE value of zero.
The points earned for an element is the sum of its Base Value and its GoE points for the panel as a whole.
For each element, the GoE point value for the panel as a whole is calculated using a simple mean or a single trimmed mean of the individual GoE values, depending on the number of judges on the panel - simple mean for four or less, single trimmed mean for five or more.
