This paper investigates properties of implicative weights and the use of implicative weights in evaluation criteria. We analyze and compare twelve different forms of implication and compare them with multiplicative weights and exponential weights that are also used in evaluation criteria. Since weighted conjunction is based on implicative weights, we also investigate the usability of weighted conjunction in evaluation criteria.
