The TFe Article Completion Score (ACS) is based on the 19 components listed here. Authors earn points for completing each component, up to the prescribed maximum for that component ('Maximum points'). So, for example, an author would be granted one point for adding one link, but no additional points would be granted if the author adds a second or third link. This prevents the author from adding 24 links to boost their ACS score by 20%. A 'fully complete' article would net 120 points, which gives a score of 100%.
