Schedule

Copilot Online Competition Stages Dates

Stage 1July 1, 2021 – September 30, 2021
Stage 2October 1, 2021 – Dec 31, 2021
Stage 3January 1, 2022 – March 31, 2022
Stage 4April 1, 2022 – June 30, 2022

A Copilot may only win once for the TCO22 tournament, so if a Copilot wins first place for more than one Stage, the trip will be given to the next Copilot in line who has not already won a trip.

LEADERBOARDS

The best Topcoder Copilot is one that consistently delivers high quality outcomes. They answer forum questions timely, write great specifications, communicate project status often and clearly, and get the job completed on time.

The leaderboard will be calculated based on fulfillment and earnings within each stage.

FULFILLMENT: Copilots must maintain a fulfillment of 90% or higher. If you drop below 90% you will not qualify for the Copilot Tournament in that given stage. Maintaining a near perfect fulfillment score will impact your overall score.

EARNINGS: Copilot payments are included based on the Registration Phase start date of each challenge or task. This includes Tasks that you copilot. For example, if you Copilot a Code challenge and the Registration Phase start date for the challenge is October 5th, then that is the date that is used. If a task is entered into the system simply for payment, then the Registration Phase start date is used as well. WE WILL BE MONITORING TASKS THAT ARE PAYMENTS FOR COPILOT WORK VS. DEV/DESIGN/QA TASKS THAT YOU ARE ASSIGNED TO, SO PLEASE BE MINDFUL. YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO EARN COPILOT POINTS FOR CHALLENGES OR TASKS THAT TOPCODER DEEMS TO BE NON-COPILOT WORK.

NOTE: Code and F2F challenges that are tagged with “Data Science” will count towards points for the Data Science track.

Topcoder reserves the right to add or remove competition tracks as needed. Competition stages and prizes may be changed at any time at Topcoder’s sole discretion.

Stage 3January 1, 2022 – March 31, 2022

A Gig Worker can only win once for the TCO22 Tournament. If a Gig Worker wins top place in more than one Stage then the trip will be given to the next Gig Worker in line who has not already won a trip.

RULES

  1. Ranking will be based on the points aggregate at the end of every quarter.

  2. Assigned weightage varies according to the importance of each parameter.

  3. The maximum points that a gig worker can earn every week are 100 and skill builder points and Exceptional Performance Points are added at the end of a quarter.

  4. In Case of equal points at the end of the quarter for 2 or more gig workers, a tiebreaker will decide the ranking. (Tie Breaker Criteria: Review Score > No. hours in a Week (Duration) > TC challenge Points)

  5. The final score will be the summation of all the weekly scores and the Skill Builder points, TC Challenge Points, and Exceptional Performance Points at the end of the quarter.

  6. If a candidate scores less than 50% marks on a review score in two consecutive weeks then , they will be dropped from the TCO Leaderboard.

  7. There are cases when a gig worker’s good performance brings more work/project for TAAS from the clients, we will give a score out of 300 in each quarter for such candidates.

  8. Reliability - If a gig worker leaves a project/organization without prior notice and approval, then their scoreboard is halted and won’t be considered for any placement in the current stage.

leaderboards

So who is the Top Gig Worker? One who delivers on high-quality work on time collaborates well with the team and is aligned with the organization’s goals.

The leaderboard will be calculated based on fulfillment, feedback ratings, Challenge Points, and Skill Builder Points within each stage.

Weekly score = [Review score + Referral Points + Points on Number of Weeks completed]

Weekly Score: Gig worker’s weekly score will be calculated based on the client review, no. of hours worked each week, referrals, and retention score with a client.

  1. Review Score [Max Marks: 45]: Review score will be calculated from Weekly Productivity or Worker Acceptance Survey Form.

  2. Referral Point s[Max Marks: 15]: The Gig worker will get referral points once the referred candidate gets placed in a gig successfully.

  3. Duration [Max Marks: 40]: Each week that the user completes 40 hours working in a gig, will get 40 marks added to the weekly scorecard.

    • 1 Week(40 hr) in a gig = 40 marks
    • 1 Week(20hr) in a gig = 25 marks
    • 1 Week(15hr) in a gig = 20 marks

Topcoder Challenge Points: Points earned on scoring a placement prize in a challenge. For each passing submission, 10 marks will be added to the Total Score, and if the submission gets a placement prize the marks added to the total score will be doubled and 20 points will be added.

Skillbuilder Points: Skill builder challenges scores will be added to the gig worker’s total score of the stage

Exceptional Performance Points: If a gig worker receives some glowing recommendations from the client or proves to be highly valuable to Topcoder, then some additional points may be awarded to them for their exceptional performance.
