Over the years, several students of the assassination have tabulated testimony of witnesses who heard the shots in Dealey Plaza.  This sounds like a precise and scientific way of going about analyzing evidence, but in reality the tabulations have differed radically in the results they have produced.  Not surprisingly, students who believe there were multiple shooters have found more witnesses who heard shots from the Knoll, and fewer who heard shots from the Depository.  People who believe that Oswald was the only shooter have consistently found more witnesses who heard shots from the Depository than from the Grassy Knoll.

The table below shows the assessments of four different scholars who have tabulated earwitness testimony.  They are:

In addition, I have included my own assessment -- based on a thorough canvass of testimony by my students -- in the next-to-last column.

In making any tabulation, a scholar must face a variety of problems and challenges. In producing my own assessment, I have used the following rules.
