The CIVA FairPlay System (FPS) has changed remarkably little since first introduced in 2005, and is well respected as the most relaible way yet to catch 'unusual' marks and resolve bias among our panels of international judges. Revisions to FPS have so far been strictly limited to the judging analysis, which from CIVA's ACRO scoring software are now linked to every online single-sequence results report.
A new "Short guide to How the FairPlay System works" is now available to spread a little understanding around Pilots and Judges alike, in an attempt to dispel the mysteries of FPS when viewing a Pilot's online score-sheet and reviewing the extensive performance analysis that we now publish for every judge. Hopefully this will lead to some smiles in place of that 'lost' look when paging through the contest results on the CIVA-Results website.
