Could someone explain please how overal rating is calculated,
I got 8 completed projects
7 projects - 5 stars each
1 project - 4,60
My overall rating is 4,85 but i believe it should be 4,95
I asked an odesk support representative about 1-2 years back regarding this. They told me that each project's rating is weighed based on the money you earned for the project.
So if you have Project 1= 5.0 rating and 10$ earned
Project 2=2.0 rating with 100$ earned
overall rating will be (5.0X10+2.0X100) /(100+10) = 2.27
You can calculate your own based on money you got for each project.
Note policies might have changed over the years so if it does not matches then ask an odesk support person about how it is presently calculated.
it's computed by dollar value of each job, not averaged by number of jobs.There used to be an article explaining it but I can no longer find it now.
