Description

This web service provides statistics about the criteria. It computes for every criterion the average value of criteria’s evaluations, the maximum value, the minimum value, the variance, the standard deviation as well as the median value.The criteria’s evaluations are supposed to be real or integer numeric values.

Inputs
