In order to improve the quality of conversation on the Edhat Comments Board, Ed has decided that all subscribers wishing to post comments submit to a psychological evaluation that will determine whether their participation in Santa Barbara's Number One Online Community and News Source will have either a positive or negative effect on the overall quality of the website.
The evaluation, developed by renowned European psychologist Efran Zangler, creates a Commentability Index (CI) that determines with a high level of accuracy whether a person will add to the discussion, or detract from it.
The brilliance of Dr. Zangler's test is that it can be taken online in 10 minutes or less. And, implementing the results of the test will save Edhat 15% on comments monitoring expenses. The questions themselves are indirect queries whose positive or negative CI weighting are impossible to detect by the test-taker.
Example questions include …
Which weighs more, a dinner roll or 5 pads of butter?
Complete the sentence: I left my umbrella in the _______.
True or False: It is impossible to have too many pictures of sunsets.
If you were a pizza topping, what would you be?
True or False: I watch Dancing With The Stars.
Any Edhat subscriber wishing to post on the Edhat Comments Board must complete an evaluation by 4/8/10. The results of the test will be provided by email within 5 business days.
