As long as we were within one point of each other on each rating, we determined that our scores were "valid" and then we added them together to get an aggregate score. If our scores happened to have more than a one point difference, then we planned to listen to the recording of the student together and talk about why we scored them the way we did, we could come to a consensus. (Thankfully, that never happened!)
