A note about scoring 

At the end of the relevant OKR time period, you will close your key results and score them based on the progress made. The scoring range is 0 – 1, with 0.7 - 0.9 being considered successful. Add comments on what went well, what you learned, and what can be done better next time.

Thoughts to consider as you determine a score include, “What did we learn from this?”, “How can we improve next time?” and “How do we build on this work?”.
