How we evaluate your work – and how you can increase your quality rating

Our experienced team of editors first evaluates your signup article and rates your content from 3 to 5 stars. Each article is analyzed, and one will be selected for rating and detailed feedback. Star levels are determined by the rating of that article. Authors who have been recently demoted are then prioritized for a quicker rating. We rate all content based on spelling, grammar, punctuation, structure, style, readability, order compliance and other factors.
