Sorry about my somewhat limited knowledge of statistics, it's just this is a tad too complex for my knowledge of the subject.

I'm running a competition where entrants are told what events happen, and they have to figure out the order of events. This would look something like, as an example:

  1. The dog dies
  2. The owner cries
  3. The police arrive
  4. The boy finds a knife

I'm looking for a way to quantifiably measure their accuracy in predicting the order of events - would this be done using something like Spearman's rho or Kendall's tau (and if so how would this be done best via Scipy), or is there a better way to do it?
