# How WorldSpace Scores Pages and Projects

WorldSpace calculates a Score for each Project based on the number of pages with issues and the priority of issues of those pages.

## Page Scores

A page score is based on the highest priority issue found on the page; it is not affected by the number of issues on the page. In priority order, the issue levels are Critical, Serious and Fair. If a page has one Critical issue and two fair issues, the page's Score is Critical. If a page has five Fair issues, its score is Fair.

View the Glossary for an explanation of the Issue categories.

## Project Score

The Project Score is an average of the Scores for each page in the Project using the following key and values for each page:

• P3 = Critical pages = 0
• P2 = Serious pages = 2/5
• P1 = Fair pages = 4/5
• P0 = Good pages (Minor or no issues) = 1

The formula for calculating a Project's Score:

• ( (1) * P0 + (4/5) * P1 + (2/5) * P2) / ( P0 + P1+ P2 + P3 )
• Critical pages "P3" receive a score of 0

## Example Project Scoring

The site in our Project has 10 pages.

WorldSpace finds...

• Four Critical pages (1 or more Critical issues)
• One Serious page (0 Critical issues and 1 or more Serious issues)
• Three Fair pages (0 Critical, 0 Serious issues and 1 or more Fair issues)
• Two Good pages (Minor or no issues)

Multiply the number of pages in each category by their value.

• Four Critical Pages: 4*0 = 0
• One Serious Page: 1*2/5 = .4
• Three Fair Pages: 3*4/5 = 2.4
• Two Good Pages: 2*1 = 2

Divide the weighted scores by the total number of pages in the Project to the get the Project Score.

• (0 + 0.4 + 2.4 + 2) / 10 = .48 = 48%
