Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Currently, the SmartScore is being fieldtested. You can probably expect your score to change dramatically over the course of the next few days, and will probably level out in a week or so. Here's an (early) explanation of your SmartScore: http://blog.openstudy.com/2012/04/09/toboldlygowherenogradeshavegonebefore/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Directrix, make sure you don't forget my *. Laura is a totally different user from @Laura* :) We=OpenStudy as the site. The algorithm is made by humans, and we chose the attributes and the weights.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Laura* > Thanks for the heads up that Laura and * are not commutative. lol I must confess that I do not know Star Laura from Laura Star but I do get the significance of the star placement. I get that the SmartScore algorithm is written by humans. My question is how an algorithm measures "passion" and "personality" without human intervention/interpretation after the algorithm has done its number crunching. Just think of me as a starfree geek but not a gearhead. The intersection of qualitative attributes and numerical ones and the quantification thereof escapes me.
