When calculating a metric for a bulletin, Rise will take the following settings into account:

**Weighting**: How many points is this metric worth?

Depending on the ranking method of the metric group this metric in weighting will either - allocate that % of the total 100 points available to that metric (Relative) or multiply the raw score by the weighting (Sum)

**Capping**: This will set a maximum score for this metric (note that on Sum ranked algorithms the cap is calculated as score x weight, while on relative ranking the cap is calculated on the score alone)

**Score method: **this determines how Rise will process the raw data entries - for example taking the latest value or summing all values in the period. More...

**Metric Ranking Order: **this tells Rise what is best - high scores or low scores.
