The installed, desktop version of Credosity calculates performance statistics in two places:
- For the user. These show on the 'My Stats' section inside Credosity for Microsoft Word and Outlook.
- For the business/account owner. These show on account.credosity.com and are accessible only to the account owner.
Here's how we calculate the different scores to track your progress across time.
Cred score: This gives you a rating out of 100 for the particular document or email you're working on. It combines how you're doing across all areas of Readability and Professionalism. You can improve your Cred score by using Credosity's suggestions to improve your writing. Make sure you click 'Refresh' regularly after you make changes.
Number of times used: This is the number of documents and emails you've checked with Credosity. Better writers use Credosity more.
Number of words analysed: This is the number of words (in documents or emails) you've checked with Credosity.
Average Cred score on first analysis: This calculates your average across all documents or emails. First analysis = the first time you check a particular document or email with Credosity.
Average Cred score on last analysis: This calculates your average across all documents or emails. Last analysis = the last time you check a particular document or email with Credosity. Typically, you'll have used Credosity to improve your Cred score by the time you run your last analysis. For us to capture your 'best' score, you need to click the 'refresh' button after you make changes to the document/email.
Cred boost (or Net Positive Impact): The difference between your two averages (first to last analysis). This is the value you've added to your writing, your reader and your own cred!
