A Rise scorebook is a score publishing news service for 1 or more players.
Data entries are collected for each player. Then a total score and, usually, a leaderboard rank are calculated for each player. This is based on a score algorithm. Permanent bulletins are published at regular intervals covering a specific score period.
Each player is given a single consolidated score calculated from many scoring metrics. Each player's score, rank and metrics is viewable as a personal scorecard.
Scorebooks are usually displayed as a leaderboard of individuals. They can also be displayed as a personalised scorecard for each player (who must log in to see it), or as a divisional leaderboard of different teams made up of aggregate scores from players in the scorebook.
A scorebook takes these factors into account when calculating your score:
Score Period – any data entries for any of the metrics time stamped as received during the Score Period will be included in the calculation of the single consolidated score for that period’s bulletin. Typically this might be the last week or last month of activity.
Metrics – these are the different ways of scoring. Simple scorebooks might just have one metric while really sophisticated ones can have many more. Each metric is typically displayed as a column on the leaderboard.
Ranking algorithm – the rank and score of someone on a scorecard is calculated in different ways: some are based on a simple ‘highest total score’ rule while others are calculated relative to other players. Scores which are ‘out of 100’ tend to be the latter type.
