Expressiveness is a new sorting capability that dscout has created specifically to help you sort through your applications and Diary entries in order to find the best scout responses, whether for finding a good fit for your mission or finding a great response for your analysis.
Expressiveness is determined by a proprietary machine learning algorithm. It takes into account, among other things:
- Linguistic features of scouts’ open-ended and video responses
- Metadata from their videos
- Their ability to follow instructions
To sort by Expressiveness, you’ll first need to expand the Sort section on the left-hand sidebar of the Applications page.
Then, find Expressiveness at the bottom of the section. Scouts will automatically be sorted from most to least Expressive.
Don’t forget to also filter by closed-ended questions and demographics, to make sure you’re finding the scouts with the right characteristics for your mission.
