In addition to the qualitative measure provided by ConsScale in the form of the 13 conceptual levels of development of consciousness, a related quantitative score (the CQS) can be also calculated.
See below for specific information about the CQS and how it is calculated. CQS possible values range from 0 to 1000. See the Table 1 below for main CQS reference values, and Figure 1 for a graphical representation of CQS values.
An explanation of how CQS is calculated is also available below (you can also use the ConsScale calculator to obtain the CQS automatically).

X-axis represents the CLS value, and Y-axis the resulting CQS.
CLS is the ConsScale Cumulative Score. See below.
The CQS curve depicted in Fig. 1 spans from 0 to 1000 in an exponential fashion, representing the cumulative synergy produced by the addition and integration of cognitive features level after level. As the perceived overall cognitive performance increases, the score also increases exponentially, providing significant values from levels 4 and 5 upwards (see Table 1).
