Majority Judgment

Identification of grading methods immune to judges’ strategic manipulation is the main focus of the chapter, which discusses social grading function immunity to manipulation and encourages the use of order function for minimizing the judges’ manipulation probability. The advantage of use of order function for the judges is discussed along with the properties of the function. Order function does not require language improvement as it provides answers for judges from different cultures in a simple language. The Borda-majority method used by the International Skating Union is compared with the SGF method determined by the kth-order function, where k is the middlemost grade with an appeal to both judges and voters.

Keywords:   grading method, strategic manipulation, social grading function, order function, Borda-majority method
