  MPAA film rating system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ratings criteria is intended to reflect changing norms and compromises between the diverse needs and rights of various interests in a large and complex modern society.
One of the unintended side effects of the rating system is that the G and (in recent years) PG ratings have been associated with children's films and are widely considered to be commercially bad for films targeted at teenagers and adults.
Farber also contended that the ratings board's stance about the ratings being used as guidelines to protect children was hypocritical in light of the fact that most of the severities imposed on certain films seemed less borne of their potential impact on children than on reactions to them by parents.

 Rating Tables and Curves   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-13)
A rating table or curve is a relationship between stage and discharge at a cross section of a river.
Because of this, when using a rating curve, it is good to keep in mind that the discharge read from the curve is the most likely value, but it could be a little different from the measured value.
Rating curves usually have a break point, which is around the stage at which the river spreads out of it's banks, or it could be at a lower stage if the river bed cross section changes dramatically.

While rating agencies have rightly been the subject of market critique and discussion, the various groups of market participants expressing views have different and potentially rivaling needs and goals, some of which are not primarily aligned with market efficiency or transparency or investor protection.
Our ratings are arrived at through a rigorous and judicious process that tends not to react to transitory conditions in favor of longer-term considerations and ratings stability.
Rating decisions are taken by a rating committee and not an individual rating analyst.

The NFL rates its passers for statistical purposes against a fixed performance standard based on statistical achievements of all qualified pro passers since 1960.
The current system replaced one that rated passers in relation to their position in a total group based on various criteria.
To earn a 2.000 rating, a passer must perform at exceptional levels, i.e., 70 percent in completions, 10 percent in touchdowns, 1.5 percent in interceptions, and 11 yards average gain per pass attempt.

 The MPAA Rating Systems   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-13)
In practice, G rated films are viewed as kiddie movies, so most filmmakers inject enough mature material into practically any film to ensure it will get at least a PG rating.
There is a defunct MPAA rating called X. It meant essentially the same thing as NC-17, with the difference that, unlike NC-17 or any of the other ratings, it wasn't trademarked.
Those, too, were rated X. The adult film industry coined the XXX rating to let you know that the film in question featured closeups of genitalia in action.

 Rating the Net
A ratings service may rate a document along multiple dimensions: that is, instead of merely rating the document as "adult" or "child-safe," it can give it separate ratings for (say) violence, sex, nudity, and adult language.
To the extent that ratings system designers seek to allow evaluators to consider more factors, in a more situationally specific manner, to capture the essence of each site, they will ensure inconsistency and hidden value choices as the system is applied.
If a ratings service is to categorize a large number of sites, it cannot simultaneously achieve consistency and nuance; the techniques it must rely on to achieve consistency make it more difficult to capture nuance, and make it less likely that users will find the ratings useful.

 GILC Statement   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-13)
Additionally, rating and filtering schemes may prevent individuals from discussing controversial or unpopular topics, impose burdensome compliance costs on speakers, distort the fundamental cultural diversity of the Internet, enable invisible "upstream" filtering, and eventually create a homogenized Internet dominated by large commercial interests.
An international content ratings system would be such a tool, creating a ratings regime and blocking mechanisms which states could impose on their citizens.
In sum, the establishment and widespread acceptance of an international rating and blocking system could promote a new model of speech suppression, shifting the focus of governmental censorship initiatives from direct prohibition of speech to mandating the use of existing ratings and blocking technologies.

 CIC: P-rating specification   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-13)
Earlier methods of rating processors relied on a combination of architecture (e.g., 5-class, 6-class) and clock speed - a system that was confusing and failed to provide a good measure of real application performance.
This system provides a single rating number for a processor (the P-rating) that gives a true measure of application performance and allows an "apples-to-apples" comparison among different processors on the market.
This allows the rating system to accommodate architectural, design, and positioning requirements for the processor being rated, ensuring a credible "apples-to-apples" comparison.
