Numerical Evaluations for the
Public Demonstration Remote-viewing sessions
If you are watching these experiments, you
may wish to participate privately by evaluating the posted remote-viewing sessions. Use this page to give you instructions on how
to score each session. To obtain a blank scoring form for you
to fill out, CLICK HERE.
The remote-viewing sessions for these public
experiments are evaluated according to the scale presented below.
Each part of each session (as identified below) is evaluated
using the same scale. The combined accuracy for the session parts
is then determined by averaging the evaluations for all parts
(see details below on averaging). After averaging the scores
for the session parts, the overall session is evaluated according
to its completeness, general tone, and its general accuracy.
All scores are then averaged to obtain an overall session score.
An overall session score of a 2.0 or higher is normally considered
NOTE: For the Session Scoring Scale, each
numerical entry measures the degree of correspondence between
the session data and the known aspects of the target.
The Session Scoring Scale
0 - None or unclear
1 - Partial but of undetermined significance
2 - Partial but clear and significant
3 - Clear, direct, and essentially complete
4 - Exceptionally accurate description of
the target elements
I - Indeterminate (This score is given if
the data are not wrong, but they are nonetheless not clearly
identifiable to a prominent target characteristic, such as if
the color brown is perceived and the target is a city containing
structures of many colors.)
The following are parts of the sessions that
are evaluated using the above session scoring scale:
Visuals (colors, luminescence, and contrasts)

The overall session is then evaluated with
Completeness: This asks how inclusive the
session is based on all the primary expected elements of the
General Tone: This evaluates the overall character
of the session in terms of its general "atmospheric"
correspondence with the target. For example, if the target is
a disaster scenario, the general tone should reflect this. On
the other hand, if the target is a simple structure on dry land,
the tone of a high scoring session with regard to general tone
should reflect this relatively passive target environment.
Accuracy: Overall session accuracy evaluates
the level of correspondence between what the viewer reports and
what is actually present at the target site. This is distinctly
different from target completeness, and the two should not be
confused. A session can report accurate although incomplete data.
For example, if a target involves a structure and subjects, the
session would still be accurate if it correctly described the
structure but contained no information regarding the subjects.
In such a situation, and if all other things are equal, the completeness
score would typically be lower than the accuracy score.
When calculating the OVERALL SESSION SCORE,
first add all numerical entries for the session parts and divide
by the number of numerical entries, excluding any I (indeterminate)
or blank entries. Then add this average score for the session
parts to the overall scores for completeness, general tone, and
accuracy, and then divide this sum by 4. If there is any confusion,
simply follow the instructions on the session
A NOTE ABOUT SCORING NUMBERED ASPECTS: When
scoring the numbered aspects, the data for each aspect can overlap
with the expected content for other aspects. After moving one's
perception to a new numbered aspect, in many cases a viewer may
continue to perceive data that are clearly related to another
target aspect. That is, the movement exercises conducted by the
viewers to the various numbered aspects usually move the perspective
of the viewers to those aspects. But sometimes a viewer's perception
remains with the prior or another aspect for reasons that are
not entirely understood. Thus, the data for each aspect are evaluated
with respect to their correspondence with known characteristics
of the overall target, even if those characteristics are applicable
to one or more numbered target aspects.
Also, deductions are not considered data and
are normally not evaluated regardless of where they may occur
in a session. However, when deductions either exactly (or nearly
exactly) identify the target or a significant characteristic
of the target, they are noted, but again not evaluated numerically.
