I'm reading this book. In a chapter on economics forecasting, he quotes from an economist:
"...Even academics aren't interested in collecting a track record of forecasts—they're not interested in making clear enough forecasts to score,"

I'm having trouble with the second part of the sentence. I couldn't understand what sense to score was used in it.

Thank you.
