A rating is the evaluation or assessment of something, in terms of quality (as with a critic rating a novel), quantity (as with an athlete being rated by his or her statistics), or some combination of both.
Rating may also refer to:
Credit rating, estimating the credit worthiness of an individual, corporation or country
Fire-resistance rating, the duration for a passive fire protection to withstand a standard fire resistance test
Naval rating, an enlisted member of a country's Navy not conferred by commission or warrant
A chess rating system is a system used in chess to calculate an estimate of the strength of the player, based on his or her performance versus other players. They are used by organizations such as FIDE, the US Chess Federation (USCF or US Chess), International Correspondence Chess Federation, and the English Chess Federation. Most of the systems are used to recalculate ratings after a tournament or match but some are used to recalculate ratings after individual games. In almost all systems a higher number indicates a stronger player. In general, players' ratings go up if they perform better than expected and down if they perform worse than expected. The magnitude of the change depends on the rating of their opponents. The Elo rating system is currently the most widely used.
Many times rater training is used in subjective trials, such as in CNS studies. Studies dealing with such indications as pain, mental disease or mood are not able to easily track progress with physical or physiological testing, rather, verbal subjective human testing is used. This can allow for an array of differences in rating.
When conducting global clinical trials, ensuring consistency is most important but can prove to be quite challenging.
