How does oDesk REALLY calculate my feedback score?

FAQ says: Our system builds your feedback score based on the ratings left by your clients and the size of those jobs. If I understand correctly, that means that the weight of an individual score is money paid for the contract. Let's do the math. I have 5 closed jobs with feedback right now: $71 * 5 $100 * 5 $120 * 5 $56 * 4.8 $94 * 1 And 2 running jobs ($286 and $358), but they don't count. The weighted average is (71*5+100*5+120*5+56*4.8+94*1)/(71+100+120+56+94)=4.12 However, oDesk displays 3.36. It acts as if I've been paid $236.39 (calculation). How come? Should I just refund those pitiful $94? Will my feedback score be restored?
