Division of Credit Modeling for Team Sports

Division of credit modeling is Zachary's term for a category of player performance evaluation in team sports. It refers to the practice of valuing player contributions and using the estimated contribution to allocate the value of the play outcome amongst the players. It relies on grading player action quality and will be illustrated using collegiate volleyball. Attendees will learn to identify the elements of a Division of Credit metric, understand the primary benefits of using this metric, and understand the necessary data required for the metric.
