## Jack1 one year ago Final question... Smart score: it's a percentile, based on the 3 sections, yeah (prob solving, teamwork and engagement)? Is there a recommended way to up a smart score (without just focusing on answering other ppls questions)? Does anyone know the formula for this equation?

1. TheSmartOne

The overall SmartScore has nothing relation with the subscores.

just answer this then: is it a percentile? it would make logical sense then as to why the max is 100, only 1 person can be 100, and your "score" can go down over time (as other people increase beyond you)... is that a correct assumption?

5. Jack1

"Plus, direct answers don't increase your smartscore as fast as answering in detail would." @TheSmartOne what did u mean by this? does this mean that a higher word count gives more "points" / weighting?

6. TheSmartOne

higher word count doesn't increase it any faster. And giving direct answers will result in warnings and/or suspensions and those slow down your SmartScore.

7. EclipsedStar

Warnings and suspensions slow down your Engagement subscore.

now you've said : "higher word count doesn't increase it any faster." then what did u mean by this @thesmartone ?: "Plus, direct answers don't increase your smartscore as fast as answering in detail would." how exactly does detailed answers vs short, concise answers change the weighting?

That was written by another user - @beccaboo333 I just copied what she had written.
