Your reading indicates how informed you are about a given topic based on the depth and context of the content you read. Our team of writers give each piece of content 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 points – those that help the most to understand the moment in the country receive the most points. Over time, this score decreases, as newer content also tends to be more relevant to understanding current events. Thus, your score in this system is dynamic: it increases when you read and decreases when you are not informed. Currently, scoring is performed only on federal government related content.
