Hi, I know that this has been discussed, but I don't understand. From Oct 6, 2019 to now, I've had ~43 scores. 36 were 10s. Of the other 7, they were
9.2 (x2), 9.3, 9.5 (x2), 9.6, and 97.
My last 10 scores were 9.7, 9.5, 9.2, 9.6, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10.
I'm honestly asking - Why is my average 8.9? I mean, I get that scores are weighted and there is a consistency factor, but I don't understand how my average is lower than any of my scores in the last 2 years (my last low score was 5,1 on Sept 4, 2019).
In my whole time here (Sept 2017), I've had over 18,000 approved translations and of those, only 7 really bad scores- 4.9, 5.3, 6.5, 6.3, 4, 7.7, 5.1 (that's the last bad score I've had. it was on 9/4/2019- there was one critical misspelling that took my score down almost 5 points to 5.1).
When will those bad grades drop off my record? If a translator improves and makes progress, at some point the standard deviation should improve. This takes into account that people improve. Thanks for clarifying!
