Dumb_as_a_Duck

i dont like the new smartscore concept. :/ We've already got marks and grades at school and college to be worried with, and though it is encouraging in its own way, it's also kind of depressing to look at it. Could you please remove it? Thanks.

    @Dumb_as_a_Duck , the marks are indicated as a measure of your performance and how helpful you are to the other people. I always take it on a positive note because these marks inspire me to do more well than before and hence it is an encouraging factor. However, this perception can vary from person to person depending on the attitude of a person

    As Amistre said why do worry over it?, no need to worry SmartScore isnt a marking scheme or anything like that its just random numbers people look at, most of the time i forget its existance. Hmm i lost my train of thought so ill end it here.

    I'm sorry you feel that way Dumb_as_a_Duck, but the SmartScore isn't going anywhere. At least not for awhile. As the above repliers have mentioned it's not an absolute score but a relative one. Although, you're not the first person to inquire about this. So, we may consider changing the scale in the future to avoid the connotation with grades as the feature evolves. It really isn't a grade - but I can see how the 0-100 scale might be misleading in that regard. Thanks for your thoughts!

    a suggestion for smartscore @farmdawgnation the "problem solving" paramter, although it means ability to solve other people's problems (as in dilemmas) it cannot be avoided to be connotated with Mathematics and Physics. so to make it general i think we should rename it as Critical Thinking or something...just a random thought :DDD

    Thanks for the idea. We've considered it and it's always a possibility we'll change it in the future.
