Scale for the Measurement of Quality in English Composition by Young People: The Location of the Zero Point for English Composition


by Milo B. Hillegas - 1912

The location of the zero point for merit in English composition by young people is of importance in order to allow the "times as much merit" judgment. Measures of fatigue, practice, or change of any sort will be greatly facilitated if we can so arrange the scale that 8, 10, and 12 on it mean twice as far from just not any of the thing in question as 4, 5, and 6; that 240 means twice as much of the thing as 120, three times as much as 80, five times as much as 48. Hitherto no one could say with any assurance whether sample 571 was two, ten or a hundred times as "good" as 618.
