In organic chemistry, what does "degree of condensation" refer to?

Well, condensation reactions involve the bonding of two molecules, through the loss of a smaller molecule, such as water or CO2. "Degree of Condensation" does not sound familiar but I would guess that it is related to the number of small molecules (water, CO2, etc.) that are loss during the condensation reaction. For instance, if only two molecules were being covalently bonded and one molecule of water was lost, this would be to a lesser degree than, say, a polymerization reaction, which bonds several molecules together and results in the loss of several molecules of water.

this web site has lot off information about degree of condenstion.if u have time i'll answer this question clearly.ok?
