Well, the way I understand it each of the categories (logic, originality etc) would be "graded" -1 to +5 and the average of this results in a score.
But how is the average computed? Just an arithmetic average where +1
for logic +1 for originality +5 for language result in a score of
+3.5? Hardly IMHO. What we would need are weights for the values. For
W[logic] = 1.5
W[originality] = 2.0
W[language] = 0.5
This would result in
logic: +1.5 = +1 * 1.5
originality: +2.0 = +1 * 2.0
language: +2.5 = +5 * 0.5
Score: +6.0 / 4.0 = +1.5
A score of 1.5 would be much closer to what a reader expects - don't
A further development could give logged-in users a chance to have
their own set of weights for the categories.
BTW: I just stumbled over the Plone product Critic_. At the minimum
this could be basis for a solution for us.
