The Exact, First, Nterms, and Proximity modules can take one parameter named considerFieldRanks. If specified, the considerFieldRanks parameter indicates that the module should further sort records according to field ranking scores, after the records have been sorted according to the standard behavior of the module.

For example, if you specify exact without the parameter in a query, records that are an exact match are sorted into a strata that is higher than non-exact matches. Within each strata, the records are only sorted according to the default sort order or a specified sort key.

If you add the considerFieldRanks parameter to URL query syntax and specify exact(considerFieldRanks), the records within each strata are sorted so that those with higher field ranking scores are more relevant than those with lower field ranking scores within the same strata.
