Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 August 2015.
All research outputs
#4,331,215
of 8,558,629 outputs
Outputs from Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning
#18
of 22 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#111,670
of 233,898 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning
#1
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,558,629 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 22 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.5. This one scored the same or higher as 4 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 233,898 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
