For the "Rating the Suburbs," is a high score better or worse? What are the ratings based on?

Not sure, but it looks like for education and safety, it's a ranking - so the lower the number, the better - but that for walkability, housing costs, and taxes, it's a number.

Location, location, location. Since it's Cleveland Magazine, how about including a score for distance to downtown Cleveland (say city hall to city hall). This is a compelling factor for a lot of people looking to relocate (proximity to work, arts, sports, etc.). Some of these exurbs are lovely (Chardon, Streetsboro, Amherst) as long as you have a minimal connection to Cleveland.
