The purpose of the study was to develop, validate, and test apply a procedure for obtaining qualitative judgments economically and efficiently. The Ford procedure for scaling partially ordered sets of rankings was programmed and validated using an abstract judgmental tasks with an extrinsic criterion. It was given a trial application requiring the ordering on merit of current personnel research projects. Both validation and trial application results were highly satisfactory. It was concluded that the Ford procedure could be used to obtain scaled qualitative judgments in a wide variety of settings with accuracy, efficiency, and economy. Flow charts, data setup, and the complete computer program are given
