I've looked at stuff like full-scale aerobatics scoring methods. Folks seem to think that the method we use measures correctness. I'm not so sure, and I haven't seen any convincing statistical justification of it. Other sports use it, so you'd think somebody would have written a scholarly paper sometime. I would be interested in discussing the math after August.
I am not arguing with you or anybody else here. George Buffalano developed a methodology for our stunt contests based on the program used for full scale aerobatics. Bob Baron was pushing hard for this. It is based on normalizing scores by each judge for each maneuver. The system can detect incorrect scoring by individual judges and to some degree, bias, and can offer a ranking of the judges. George performed analyses for the CIAM after several World Championships using his program. On my recommendation and urging from Bob Baron, George wrote a paper in Stunt News several years ago that presented this concept. I wrote an introduction for George on that article. The article received absolutely zero response from the PAMPA membership. I made reference to that article and when it was published on one of these forums a year or so ago and again, zero response.
One characteristic of this program, as I understand it, is that no rankings or scores are available until all of the flights are completed, the scores entered into the computer, the computer does its thing, and then the final scores are printed and the rankings of the pilots are available. I do not know if our event is ready for that process.
The full scale aerobatic community has embraced this program as bias in the international aerobatic judging community was previously causing considerable strife and dissention to the point of eliminating the international program.
