What is Curiosity Scoring? How can my students get higher scores?

The Curiosity Score measures quality of all questions and answers on Packback. Every post earns a point score out of 100 based on its Depth (how thoughtful you were in forming your response), Credibility (citing high-quality sources), and Presentation (using our Text Editor to properly format, and inserting images/video).

Students can get higher scores by posting questions and responses that are more aligned with our Community Guidelines. If students want to see examples of high quality questions and responses in the community, they can check out the "Featured Posts" tab!

Feel free to check out our blog if you'd like some more background info on our thought processes behind the Curiosity Scoring Algorithm.
