Help wanted to investigate arrow-switching
A club wants to investigate arrow-switching and they have agreed that I post their request here.
The attached paper https://drive.google.com/file/d/14tMepX9aIQfwA-1aWJd6w6bTHsjqFh90/view?usp=sharing entitled 'Effects of Arrow Switching' provides analysis I carried out on 6 club sessions. My observations suggest that arrow switching is a flawed technique. You may not consider the analysis of just 6 sessions sufficient evidence. However you may previously received concerrns from other members or clubs on this issue. You could invite clubs to participate in a wider study by asking them to submit the analysis of 2 or 3 sessions in a similar fashion as I have done. The calculation of rank could be done centrally when submissions are made.
For the purposes of central analysis, returns could be standardised by
1. Sessions containing 7 to 10 tables
2. Same number of positions. 8 places in my study.
3. Format of returns as my paper.
If you need to have an overall winner, perhaps the method suggested in my second paper https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NIh3dk7xQc515m2HZJ6EkGILk5wBhpLc/view?usp=sharing entitled 'Alternative to Arrow Switching' may provide a suitable and fairer alternative.
