This chapter focuses on the use of majority-ranking compared with the traditional model of social choice theory. Social grading function as strategy-proof-in-ranking is used in the chapter to illustrate the dominance of the strategy for judges to assign grades according to their wishes. The difference of the ranking procedure used by the International Skating Union (ISU) and the majority-ranking is presented, highlighting ISU’s use of increasingly ad hoc devices for its majority-grade system. Precision of majority-ranking is compared with ISU’s ranking system along with the comparison of majority-ranking for the SCW, election Society with ISU’s ranking system. The chapter presents the majority-ranking characterization that equals majority-grade characterization.

Keywords:   majority-ranking, social choice theory, Social grading function, International Skating Union, majority-grade system
