Gem: acts_as_meritocracy

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by n.maisonneuve, May 2, 2012.

  1. Hi ruby folks,

    I would like annonce the release of a gem called "acts_as_meritocracy".

    This gem is a mixin enabling a weighted majority voting system for any
    model with qualitative decisions/categories. As measure of
    consensus/inter-rater agreement, you can choose between a weighted
    variant of the Fleiss’s Kappa (by default) or the entropy of the
    distribution of votes. The consensus score is in the interval [0,1].
    very high consensus=1 , very low consensus=0

    NOTE: this voting system has been developed to take (collective) a
    decision about items, not rank items (e.g. by popularity). i.e.
    generally once a certain level of consensus is reached on a given item,
    a decision is taken and the vote is close.

    it's a very alpha release but I hope it could be useful for some of you.
    feedback welcome

    Nicolas
