I am attempting to compare results of a study I am performing on marching
bands. I have scores of over 200 bands from 5 different states. Each
state uses a different scoring system although they are all based upon 100
points They are different in that some give equal emphasis to marching and
music (50%/50%), while others split it 60/40 or 55/45. The judges for the
various contests were of equal ability but were not the same for each
state. How do I tell if the states are comparable? If they are not, can I
make them comparable. How?
Thanks in advance for your help...
