The judges rate each team based on a number of criteria like the teams ability to work together as a cohesive unit, their knowledge of the history of the specific sites they are investigating and also the actual evidence the teams are able to gather during their time at the investigation site. Each team on Paranormal Challenge is given four hours to go through each of the various haunted sites.

The teams are also given a camera and sound person to help them record whatever evidence they find at the sight. While the teams investigate, their every move is also watched and listed to by Zak and the judges. At the end of the show each teams points are added up and one team is named the best group of paranormal investigators.
