Thread: Poll on New Rating System

  1. #1

    Arrow Poll on New Rating System

    Poll on New Rating System for the Spreadsheet

    As many people know Robin has passed the Montreal SpreadSheet onto new hands. I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as it's new care taker and wish to acknowledge Robin for all his past efforts.

    One of the first things at hand is to decide on the rating system to be used.


    The 5 point system is in effect right now, there has been interest in the 10 point system, along with 1/2 points or even abolishing the rating all together.

    Could everyone be so kind as to give me some input as to the rating system that you prefer to be used on the Montreal Spreadsheet.

    Here are our 5 choices:

    The 10 point system example: 7, 8, 9,10
    or
    The 10 point decimal system example: 8.0, 8.5, 9.0, 9.5
    or
    The 5 point decimal system example: 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5
    or
    Do not change the rating system example: 2, 3, 4, 5
    or
    No Rating system

    Thank you for taking the time for your feedback.

    The new location of the sheet can be found at montrealspreadsheet.ca.

    HI

    and thank you for your work.

    For me, i think that a 10-point rating system with the possibility of using 0.5 points, hence the decimal rating system as you mention, gives a more complete description.

    It does not matter. Far more important is the descriptive text and the acronyms.

    Perhaps you're right if you examine only 1 review independently, but if you compile , say, 10 reviews on one provider , it's nice to be able to have a user-friendly, number-based assessment system with which you can quickly compare reviews on the same provider, and, heck, even come up with a mean score .

    Keep in mind

    In regard to searching the enormous spreadsheet...

    When I search the spreadsheet I often search for a 5,5,5 and some of those would go unnoticed with a 5, 4.5, 5. What I would really like to see is a searchable database...now that would be nice!!

    Yeah, but w/o & DFK, I don`t care what her numbers are.

    decimal system

    What is the difference between a 4.5/5 and a 9/10 ?

    And for that matter, what would be the difference between a 8.5/10 and a 17/20 ?

    Also, if one goes decimal, what would be the difference between a 8.5/10 and a 8.6/10 ?

    Food for toughts.

    How bout a ten point rating system with three judges holding up the score? And cant forget the announcer wispering the results into the mike

    "ohhh, look.......she stuck the landing perfectly"

    And you have to also factor in the 'skill' level, degree of difficulty...and the number of bunji cords used

    And just hope the judges dont say to themselves "boy, that was a very short performance"

    the decimal 10-point system too, because it gives a lot more room to move.
    The above reason is exactly why I myself prefer the 1/2 points for sake of maneuverability. many times I could see myself getting stuck between 8 and 9 where as 8.5 would suffix nicely.

    The perfect 10 just doesn't exist
    I had mentioned almost the same amongst my cohorts. With/If with the 10 point system, people will find it hard pressed to find a rating of 10.

    Just a few of my initial thoughts.

    Thank you

    Ok, fine, but let`s suppose you`re hesitating between 4 sps, all of whom provide and DFK, then you`ll be looking at other factors to make a final choice, one of which may be her overall scores .

    great idea

    I may start using this type of scale in all my reviews. This is a good compromise between the 5 and 10 point scale and would be more accurate given everyone varying tastes.
    SA
    Hey SA, i really like your overall impression scale. However, i would stick to 5 categories only, scrapping the "good" category since you already have one for being " above average". I suggest that, after having broken down your assessment of the girl on, say, a 10-point decimal scale for things like looks, attitude, etc., we should give an overall appreciation score that could be based on S A's idea.

    accurate description is better than # ranking.....that I find useless...

    Any system that uses decimals in really only a 100 point scale in disguise
    We're only talking .5 or 1/2 points. It's much easier to give an 8.5 when stuck between 8 and 9. It just gives more options and accuracy IMHO.

    It does look like we will be using the 10 point 1/2 decimal system.
    Example 3.5, 4. 4.5 ......8, 8.5,9, 9.5, 10.

    Based on
    1) appearance:
    2) personality/attitude:
    3) service:

    It would be much appreciated if the new reviews are rated in that format. For the next several versions, until fully implemented and revised, many rating will still show the old rating format.

    Thank you and all your opinions were highly regarded.

    Thumbs down 10 Point Decimal System

    This is one thread where the democratic vote really worked. I believe the voters did get it right with this new system. I salute all of those who joined me in voting overwhelmingly for the new system.
