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 Power1 to 5 X Priority1 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.
