Why is it important that I rate resources?

When you rate resources, you give the portal information that helps provide you with better recommendations and portal users with your opinion of the value of a resource. The more users provide ratings, the more valuable the portal becomes to the user community.

Can other users see what I rated a resource?

No. Only the cumulative rating and number of responses are shown to other users. However, when you are logged in, you will be able to see how you rated a selected resource from that resource's full or brief records.

Can I rate something more than once?

No, you cannot provide more than one rating for a selected resource. However, you can change your rating.
