CF Score

What is CF score?

CF score is a measure of the quality of solutions you submit. It is typically the % of positive ratings your solutions receive and is based on ratings given by students.

Note: Quality badges are not converted into ratings, thus, the CF Score calculation is done on the basis of student ratings only.

To continue contributing on Chegg Q&A board, you are advised to maintain a healthy CF score of 80% and above.

Note: Low CF scores are grounds for revocation of authoring privileges.

CF Score calculation

Let us give you an example of how the CF score is calculated: If you have submitted 20 solutions and you get a total of 10 ratings, with eight positive and 2 negative ratings then your CF score is 80% (8 positive ratings/ 10 total ratings).

Now if you get one more positive rating, then your CF score will be 9/11 (positive ratings/total ratings) = 81.8% but if you get a negative rating, then your CF score will be 8/11= 72.7%.

We would like to convey crucial points that will not only help you to improve your authoring quality/CF score, but also build a great profile with us.

Below are the common errors which experts usually commit while authoring:

Plagiarized Solution – Plagiarism is using someone else’s work and presenting it as a part of the solution. Note: If you are not sure about the solution then skip the question using “Do not have subject knowledge’’ option.
Giving Direct Solutions to Multiple Choices Questions – As per the guideline, provide detailed steps/explanation for the correct solutions. If you are authoring anything just make sure the handwriting is very clear and legible.
Writing comments in authoring section about a question – Authoring section is for submitting solutions only! You might get revoked due to this, and we never want that to happen!
If a question has a link to another website for details – We do not appreciate this from the students. Please SKIP such questions as Abusive/Spam.
Calculation errors –Please double check the calculation before submitting the solution. Your challenging work will be in vain if you make some calculation errors.
Not Skipping Incomplete Questions – If a question is incomplete, then you should SKIP the question with ‘Needs More Information’ tag and provide comments in the SKIP section only. Do not write any comment in the authoring section.

Always submit correct, step by step detailed explanation in your solutions. You can attach neat and readable images and diagram whenever required.

Students are down voting my solution even when my solutions are correct? What should I do?

Students usually down vote solutions if they find them to be incorrect/irrelevant/incomplete, generally students do so when they are not able to understand the solution posted by experts. Please explain the solution in detail to ensure the student's understanding and satisfaction.

Note: Please refrain from posting unnecessary/ argumentative/ irrelevant comments as this may lead to revocation of your authoring privileges.
