The New CrowdSurf Scoring

Here Is How Scoring Can Help You Advance With CrowdSurf!


Our goal is to enable our transcribers with the tools and resources to empower both you personally and your work with CrowdSurf.

In our effort to provide more immediate feedback on less-than-perfect work, we are making some improvements and upgrades to our Scoring system.  Our goal is to create a fully transparent quality system that more efficiently informs workers to make corrections thus ensuring higher quality transcripts. All of this will mean bigger bonuses and promotion opportunities while ensure high media transcription quality.

We understand that this process of rolling out the New Scoring system has been bumpy, and we apologize for that.  We are offering the reinstatement quiz to allow people the opportunity to gain back qualifications if you have been blocked and we are working quickly to provide feedback on on your rejections. 

Thank you for your understanding.



FIRST- We have defined a new scoring system that allows for standardized promotional reviews when defined thresholds have been reached. The new scoring scale is 900 – 1000

  • You will not be defaulted to 0 or lose any of the status you have built up with us.  
  • All CrowdSurf turks will begin at a 950 score!
  • At 1000 you can request to be reviewed for level 2 promotion (Review Transcription Qualifications)
  • Complete additional 200 Transcription HITs + 50 Review HITs with a score of 3.7+ to reach level 3.


SECOND- We are updating how your transcripts are scored on the new scale!  Transcripts will be reviewed on the following scale:

  • +10 = PERFECT 
  •  -1 = FAIR 
  • -20 = POOR 
  • -40 = FRAUD

* These scores will be added or subtracted from your CrowdSurf qualification score –effective immediately.  

Watch your score grow until you reach 1000… maintain 1000
and you’re a top worker!


THIRD- Where should you look for your new Qualification Score?

It’s right on your Qualifications tab if working on CrowdSurfWork Platform and on your Dashboard if working on Mturk (Just click on any CrowdSurf task to expand the details and look under “Your Value”. See it in action HERE!)

These changes will help you to easily keep track of how well you are doing on CrowdSurf transcripts.  No need to request your QC score- your Qualification score tells you how you’re doing


We look forward to your Promotion!
