WORKSHEET 13: PRINCE CHART

(A) Using the policy and players developed for Worksheets 11 & 12, place estimates of the issue position, power, and priority for each player in the Prince Chart below. Then calculate the players' Prince Scores:

Policy: | Increase Asthma Education in Bronx Public Schools |

(State in terms of a desired political outcome.) |

PLAYERS | Issue Position -5 to +5 |
X | Power 1 to 5 |
X | Priority 1 to 5 |
= | PLAYER'S PRINCE SCORE |

Dr. Neil Cohen | +4 | X | 4 | X | 3 | = | +48 |

Herbert Berman | -4 | X | 5 | X | 1 | = | -20 |

Victor Robles | -3 | X | 5 | X | 2 | = | -30 |

Joel Klein | +2 | X | 4 | X | 0 | = | +8 |

Lucille Swarns | +3 | X | 2 | X | 1 | = | +6 |

(B) Calculate the probability:

Calculation 2: Sum of all of the positive scores plus 1/2 neutral scores = `62`

Calculation 3: Sum of all scores ignoring signs and parentheses = `112`

Calculation 4: Probability of support = Calculation 2 divided by Calculation 3= `62/112` = `.554` = `(55%)`

(C) Write a brief interpretation of the results of your calculations:

`There is a 55% chance the policy will be implemented. Since the chance is close to 50%, it is uncertain whether the policy will be implemented and the policy will continue to be disputed.
