● Thailand has considered the proposed changes in the scoring system of AEA and would like the participants to comment as follow:
i. In considering that the existing rule doesn’t allow the judge to score the reports submitted by his/her own country, it is noted that the proposed ranking system, using ranking average, may cause bias amongst countries.
ii. In addition, it should be noted that the ranking system may not reflect the true quality of each report if number of judges is not enough. This effect is most prominent when each report is of similar level in quality.
iii. To solve this problem, EE&C SSN should study the possibilities of using online system to encourage participation by all countries. This may ultimately eliminate the need for physical meeting which helps reduce cost and promotes participation.
