What are Chegg quality reviews?

Quality Review/HCV Flagged/Red Badge

Quality reviews are the feedbacks given by our in-house team of experts for accuracy, thoroughness, and adherence to the Q&A guidelines that experts received on solutions. Your solutions are evaluated by our Quality team and depending on their quality are given a Quality Check/ QC score ranging from 0-5. Now with the scores, you will also be provided with badges as follows:-
The new feature has three colors of badges:

- Green means “satisfactory”

- Yellow means “neutral”

- Red means “unsatisfactory”

We advise you to use the Quality reviews to improve your authoring quality and make sure not to repeat the same mistakes. This way, you can refine your solutions and offer the best solution to students. We will surely provide timely and regular feedbacks on your solutions. 

Let us also walk you through some of the most common and frequent reasons experts receive in their Quality Review:

1) Solution with Missing steps/Incomplete solution/Missing explanation- In this case, you have either not provided the complete steps or have provided a direct or an solution without a complete explanation. For example – if you have received a question to explain photosynthesis, then in that case you need to provide the solution with a proper definition about photosynthesis, followed by its concepts, and provide a proper explanation along with a well-labeled diagram if required.

2) Plagiarized solution-Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own. 
Different forms of plagiarism include Copying from other sources, Rearranging sentences, Partial sentence plagiarism, Copying diagrams, charts and graphs. Please note: Chegg follows a zero-tolerance policy against plagiarism. Copied solution link is always provided by our quality team for your reference. In case you get the same question that you have previously solved, always add more explanation/steps to your solution for students’ better learning experience.

3) Typo/Spelling/Grammar Mistakes- This reason implies that your solution is conceptually correct, however, there are a few typo/spelling/grammatical mistakes in your solution. To provide good quality solutions, it is also important to make sure the solution is without any typo or is grammatically correct.

4) Honor Code Violation (HCV)- Please do not solve if the question comes under the category quiz, Test, Exam. Attempting such questions comes under HCV. Also, questions containing the name of the university, author or professor names, book name, publication name or logo, third party links, external URL logo, name, trademark, and copyright content should not be solved and skipped using "This question violates authoring guidelines:” with the applicable sub-options “Exam/Test/Quiz, Copyright/External URL or Points/Marks/Grades”. In case of cropped output image or screenshot- cropped part should be without the third-party IDE name or logo or external link. Please avoid posting screenshots that are uncropped. Promoting other websites/products are considered to be an abuse of the system. 

5) Honor Code Violation (HCV)-Direct Solution- Submitting Direct solutions are not allowed and is considered as an Honor code violation

6) Solved Invalid Questions- In case you get a question, which should not be solved as per the Authoring Guidelines, for example, the question is activity or opinion-based, then in such cases, the experts are advised not to attempt these questions as there is no universally correct solution for them and should be skipped under “This question violates authoring guidelines: with the sub-option, Requires Lab work or Spam” accordingly. If the question is not completely readable or the question is not complete (even when the data is written by the student separately/available in public separately/can be deduced), please skip those questions using “I cannot solve this question, because: with the sub-option, Question is incomplete” and provide what is missing comments in the SKIP section only. 

7) Abused Solution- Solving a question that violates the Chegg Honor code will be considered spam as per the Chegg Authoring Guidelines. Questions containing third-party URLs, or the above violation terms, such questions should be skipped using "This question violates authoring guidelines:” with the sub-option “Copyright/External URL”. In the review, you will also get the exact reason for considering it as an invalid solution.

8) Diagram/Table/Plot or relevant data missing- It is extremely important to provide a solution with complete information, for providing better quality solutions to our students. In case you miss out to provide a supporting diagram/table/plot or any relevant data in your solution, then you will get a quality review under this reason.
