We have worked to develop an algorithm that measures the quality of a user’s questions or responses. There are three criteria that play into the way your post is graded:
- Presentation -- This takes into consideration formatting, legibility, images, videos, and other supplemental resources that enhance the post to make it more interesting. The more of this a post has, the more opportunity there is for people in your community to explore their curiosity!
- Credibility -- Does your post provide evidence that supports your ideas and arguments? Are the sources you’re using to provide support reliable and relevant? Including this kind of evidence provides a strong structure for you to build your post upon!
- Depth -- A writer who demonstrates effort asks a question or responds to another classmate’s question in ways that are unique and engaging rather than simply straightforward! The more open-ended your question or the more in-depth and exploratory your response, the more effort is shown, and the more Curiosity Points you earn on the post.
The more attention to these three criteria your post demonstrates, the more Curiosity Points your post will earn! Check out our Packback Blog post for more insight of our Curiosity Scoring System.
