Each activity is weighted either medium or high. To achieve the maximum 40 points for the Improvement Activity score, pick 1 of these combinations:
• 1 high-weighted activity (any subcategory)
• 2 medium-weighted activities (any subcategory)
Each medium-weighted activity is worth 20 points of the total Improvement Activity performance category score. A high-weighted activity is worth 40 points of the total category score. You can pick 2 medium-weighted activities or 1 high-weighted activity to earn a total of 40 points of the total category score.
