• responses
  • The authors stated that this range of scoring improves both the sensitivity of the index to change in the state of the disease and improves the test's capacity to elicit a range of responses across the entire scale (Calin et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • MRI scans and radiographs were scored for structural changes and these parameters were examined as independent predictors of changes in osteoarthritis symptoms after 32 weeks. (springer.com)

  • A 2011 study into the relationship between coincidence and paranormal belief using the Australian Sheep-Goat Scale revealed "significant interaction effect between Sheep-Goat score and type of coincidence, suggesting that people with lower thresholds of surprise, when experiencing coincidences, harbor higher paranormal belief than those with a higher threshold.

  • example
  • With comparative scaling, the items are directly compared with each other (example: Do you prefer Pepsi or Coke? (wikipedia.org)
  • In noncomparative scaling each item is scaled independently of the others (example: How do you feel about Coke? (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, range voting with truncated means is used in figure skating competitions to avoid the results of the third skater affecting the relative positions of two skaters who have already finished their performances (the independence of irrelevant alternatives), using truncation to mitigate biases of some judges who have ulterior motives to score some competitors too high or low. (wikipedia.org)
  • possible
  • The possible answers are "true", "uncertain" and "false", which score two points, one point and zero points, respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • items
  • The sum of the points given to the 18 items is the total ASGS score, which ranges from 0 through 36. (wikipedia.org)
  • the scale does not include items on astrology, cryptozoological creatures, or extraterrestrial intelligence, to name a few anomalies. (wikipedia.org)
  • provide
  • Certain methods of scaling permit estimation of magnitudes on a continuum, while other methods provide only for relative ordering of the entities. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is simpler for voters than cumulative voting, where they are not permitted to provide scores for more than some number of candidates. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Intraoperative pedobarography leads to improved outcome scores: a Level I study. (wikipedia.org)
  • This study used the Oucher scale to assess pain in the children. (wikipedia.org)
  • A relationship between narcissistic personality and paranormal belief was discovered in a study involving the Australian Sheep-Goat Scale. (wikipedia.org)
  • given

  • range

  • A multi-winner variant, re-weighted range voting, is used to select the nominees for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • numeric
  • Sports such as gymnastics rate competitors on a numeric scale, although the fact that judges' ratings are public makes it less likely for them to engage in blatant tactical voting. (wikipedia.org)
  • although

  • conditions
  • In the scientific field, Richter and his team developed a score for diagnosing and tracking foot and ankle conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research
  • The Unidimensional Fatigue Impact Scale (U-FIS) was developed in 2009 by Galen Research primarily for the measurement of multiple sclerosis related fatigue. (wikipedia.org)
  • method
  • Another method of counting ratings ballots is to find the median score of each candidate, and elect the candidate with the highest median score. (wikipedia.org)
