Here is how the ACPAC Board will grade candidate survey responses for the 2012-2013 cycle.
There are a total of seven (7) questions on the survey. Each response will be assigned a grade on a scale of 1 to 7 by the Board. We then add the total points from the survey and then assign a letter grade to that candidate based upon the responses using the criteria below.
It is possible for a candidate to not be in favor of a particular issue and still get an "A" grade or even an endorsement from Arkansas Carry PAC.
Scoring: (1) 15 points (2) 15 points (3) 8 points (4) 4 points (5) 15 points (6) 4 points (7) 4 points
Total: 65 points
After scoring, explanations of scores could be similar to this:
'A+' indicates an exceptional pro-gun rights survey coupled with excellent voting record
'A' - indicates an exceptional pro-gun rights survey
'B' - indicates a pro-gun rights survey
'C' - indicates a mixed gun rights survey
'D' - indicates an anti-gun rights survey
'F' - indicates a survey hostile to gun rights
'NR' - not rated indicates an incomplete survey with little or no voting record or past statements
