How scores are plotted in the Snowflake?

The Snowflake is a visual summary of the result of the 30 checks in 5 core assessment criteria that we analyze on a company - Value, Future Performance, Past Performance, Health and Dividend.  You read the separate documentation of our analysis model here.
 

Each assessment criteria has a corresponding 6 check points where we score either 1 or 0 if a company passes or fails. Details of which are provided on the company analysis report where you can see marks of  either check ( ✔ ) or ( ). The plotting of scores spans from inside to outside, meaning the middle is equal to zero, while the outer line is equivalent to 6.

          

The color of the Snowflake depends on how many checks a company has passed on the analysis. The more checks that are passed, the larger the surface area of the snowflake, and the more green it becomes. Please note, however, that stocks that have been categorized under funds/ETF are by default have light blue snowflake. Snowflake doesn't work well for them as they are not yet fully fitted into our analysis model.
