I'm a traditional judge with 4 years of experience as a high school LD debater.
As the mechanism by which you weigh the round, your value should be the main focus of the clash and all contentions should link back to the value framework. If your contentions do not link back to your value structure or your criterion does not weigh the value, you will lose. Developing effective communication and critical thinking skills is the main goal of forensics, and I expect to see argumentation based not only on statistics but solid logic and speech that reflects careful thought of the debate at hand. If run a K, theory, or spread, I will not vote for you.
You should have some kind of framework for your case. Although not as important as in an LD round, you should still be able to tell me why your arguments are significant, and more importantly, why they outweigh your opponents' arguments. Simply listing statistics is not sufficient to win the round, I expect to see logical warrants for each number.
