Agenda

The committee has the following items on its agenda:

  • Review the rating system and suggest future improvements
  • Set the categories and criteria for official NASPA records and maintain the list of records.
  • Maintain a list of annual leaders in various recognized categories, and to periodically review those categories.
  • Assess the impact of raising the Local Club Tournament multiplier from 1/3 to 1/2
  • Liaise with the WESPA Ratings Committee
  • Consider assigning new entrants into the NASPA TWL rating system with established NASPA Collins ratings their current Collins rating as an initial TWL rating, for the sake of symmetry and accuracy.

History

We have archived information about our predecessor, the NSA Ratings Committee, whose official webpage is no longer available online.

Activity criteria adjusted

The Committee has revised the thresholds for being listed as an active player in the official rating lists. Until June 2007, the requirement for TWL-rated players was one tournament game played in 12 calendar months; it then changed under the NSA to 28 games played in 24 calendar months; it is now 14 games played in 12 calendar months. The same activity requirement was also instituted for CSW-rated players; who had previously had no activity requirement. This change was motivated by a shift in playing patterns to events that are smaller and more frequent, as well as the now annual National SCRABBLE Championship.
