So here is the situation:

Person A is a known factor and be rated 1 to 3 in each category with accuracy.

Person B can only be rated with accuracy in 2 of the 3 categories.

Person C has little known about them in any category.

Here is the problem:

Do I give Person B and C an median rating ("2") or rate them as "0" in the categories where little is known about them? What is fair?

Anybody have any better ideas how to rate them?

Thanks.
