Foundation 3: External quality ratings
Implicit ratings have the disadvantage of being biased. This gives rise to an external group or authority in the ratings system. Though, the group or authority may not be biased, there are other factors that may tender the ratings invaluable. These factors include:
- 1. Since the external authority or group are not a part of the platform, they may not give true ratings.
- 2. The group may not know all factors to be considered before rating a worker
- 3. They may provide dummy ratings if they fail to understand a particular situation or a particular mechanism
The platform can allow both, implicit and explicit ratings. The weighted average of the two can be computed to obtain the final rating. As an alternative, each type of rating can contribute a fraction to the final rating. The mechanism of anonymous ratings can be introduced to limit the partiality of implicit ratings.
