We characterize a rule for aggregating binary evaluations that is similar in spirit to the Borda rule from the preference aggregation literature. The framework of binary evaluations was introduced as a general approach to the aggregation problem by Wilson (J. Econ. Theory 10 (1975) 63-77). In this setting we characterize a rule called the “mean rule” which is derived from properties that are similar to those Young (J. Econ. Theory 9 (1974) 43-52) used in his characterization of the Borda rule.
