What specifically are the criteria for assigning a "construction quality" rating of 6 or 7.

There must be a list of things that the number is based on besides a contractor being clean. Is is building materials/techniques (like 6 in stem walls or pressure treated lumber) used or finishes (like granite vs formica)?  I get it that a higher number is indicative of a better built house but what is the number based on?

Construction qualify is typically set by the local assessor, so the actual  meanings can vary. Check with your local assessor for their guidelines.

In general, though, it's based on construction style and materials. Things like custom home vice tract house, slab vice basement/footings, stucco vice brick, and then finish material all come into play. Not sure, but I'd also expect things like type of plumbing, insulation levels, etc. to also come into play.
