I just published a really interesting, important analysis of debate tabulation methods on my blog. The summary results: Speaker points are just as accurate a measure of true team strength as win-loss record. Power-matching as practiced in the 2006-07 college debate season does not give equal strength teams equal schedules. (This method is probably still in use in many high school tournaments.) Unequal schedule strengths are highly correlated with discrepancies in the two ranking methods, point ranks and win ranks. Please go to my blog and comment!
