Scale for the Measurement of Quality in English Composition by Young People: Results Obtained with the First Set of Samples and the Selection of the Second Set


by Milo B. Hillegas - 1912

More than one hundred individuals worked with the set of eighty-three samples. Some, however, did not understand the directions and some made such serious mistakes in recording their results that it was possible to use only seventy-three of the records. These records were copied on a large sheet for convenience in handling, and the distribution of the positions assigned to each sample was determined. The next step was to compare the position assigned each sample with that assigned each other sample in order to determine just how many of the judges had considered any given sample better than any other given sample. These "better" judgments were arranged in tabular form such as is shown in Table IV on page 26.
