Default Do you have an FIDE rating? Survey on chess skill.

Dr. Robert Howard of the University of New South Wales in Australia is
carrying out a study of chess skill in internationally rated players.
The study looks at effects of amount of practice, coaching and age of
starting chess on chess skill and at chess players’ views about chess
skill. The study involves a short online survey. The survey is only
for anyone who has, or who ever has had, an FIDE rating.

The survey takes only about 5-10 minutes to complete. All responses
are completely confidential. The survey is available in English,
Spanish, Russian, and German.

To take part, you must know your exact FIDE ID number, which will be
something like “14200887". ID numbers are posted on the FIDE website
at (

A summary and analysis of the study findings will be posted here when
it is complete and will be emailed to any participant who requests

If you would like to participate, please go to this website:

South Wales, on
