How do we measure progress?

Not all content is created equally. Your coverage score reflects the amount of content you have covered relative to the total amount of relevant getAbstract content available on a given topic (adding up to 1,000 points). You may have only consumed three pieces of content on a given topic but still receive a high content coverage score because the three pieces covered most relevant concepts related to the wider topic. We guide you to new ideas and steer you away from repeating the same content in different packaging.

How are points allocated?

Content coverage points indicate the relative importance of that piece of content based on your reading history. Content introducing you to ideas and concepts you have not yet covered will be assigned a higher point score.

Why are summary recommendations given approximate (~) scores before I click on them?

We approximate the points for new pieces content because the score may change if you read something else beforehand that covers similar topics. The higher the point score of a summary, the more topics it includes that are not reflected in your reading history.

Why did my point score in a channel I follow go down?

Your coverage score reflects the amount of content you have covered relative to the total amount of relevant getAbstract content available on a given topic (adding up to 1,000 points in each channel you follow). Your point score drops when new content is added to the channel from which you can gain additional knowledge.

In what languages can I measure my learning progress?

The current beta version of the functionality is only available in English. Depending on the success of the new functionality, however, other languages may follow.
