The rules define what is allowed (the question) and if you don't follow them (an incorrect answer), you receive a penalty (you lose the points for the question). In many cases you may be informed of a scoring penalty, but not always. Under the Scoring Guidelines, you should ALWAYS be informed if you are disqualified.
What I mean is that if we received partial disqualification for an event (i.e. removing goggles for two seconds for one of the lab events, would the coaches be informed?
Disqualification is binary you are either 1 or 0, either you are disqualified or you are not. There is no partial disqualification.
If you got disqualified from an event the Event Supervisor should have notified you on the spot.
Also as stated above, the scoresheets would reflect this disqualification so you could easily double check to see if you were disqualified or not.
