Natasha, is is thought that:
7-10 = Positive
5-6 = Neutral
0-4 = Negative
Of course you will never get an official response with an answer, and my response undoubtedly has a disclaimer.

That is quite demanding, 8 should be good too.
The reason I think 0-4, 5-6 and 7-10 are more reasonable assumptions, is that the associated questions for choosing each score changes outside of these ranges. In other words, if a client chooses 0-4 there is one set of questions, 5-6 no questions and 7-10 a different set of questions.
It is therefore reasonable to assume that these are the ranges.
I would like to know the answer to this as well as my score has dropped from 100 to 94 after a contact closed and client left 5 star feedbacks.
Looks like I got downgraded due to private feedback that the client left I don’t think this client left bad private feedback and may have misunderstood Upwork totally
If this is the case that a client needs to leave a 9 or 10 or otherwise the freelances score goes down is completely ridiculous and unacceptable and unfair as you may have done a great job for a client and they may have given you a 7 thinking that they are giving you a good score when in fact they are hurting you..
Most people view a scale from 1 to 10 as exactly that 5 is always neutral 10 is perfect so shouldn’t the score reflect that If you get a 5 it should be no change to JS anything below a 5 your JS goes down anything above 5 your JS should go up
I would also like to know as I have noticed that most people that this has happed to their score like mine drops 5 to 6 points but I also have read on other posts that others have noticed that when they do get a 9 or 10 that their score only goes up 2? So no 9 or 10 and score goes down 5 to 6 points get a 9 or 10 rating and you score goes up 2????
Also on a side note can anyone tell me why I keep getting 5 star feedback (6 so far) yet my feedback score has not gone up at all it still sits a 4.87 after 6 5 sat feedback has not gone up one tick on either my profile or on my JS??
