The name of the step is, however, always the middle point of the step. In rating a composition, it is placed on one of the steps because it has a value considered to be nearer the middle point of that step than the middle point of any other step. If ten or any other number of compositions were placed on one step, it is the practice to consider them for purposes of computation as distributed at equal intervals along that step. By reference to Table XXVII it will be seen that although step D bears the name of the value 2.8, it has a range which begins with 2.37 and continues through 3.32. Every composition which is being measured and which falls within this range is given the rating of 2.8. In like manner every composition which is being compared with the scale samples and which falls within the range 6.62 and 7.61 is given the rating 7.2. This procedure simplifies the distribution and permits of more rapid calculation of the median.

Rating compositions.--The best result will probably be obtained by having each composition rated several times, and if possible, by a number of different judges who have trained themselves in the use of the scale, the paper being given each time that value on the scale to which it seems nearest in quality. The final mark for each paper should be the median score or ...Read Less
