To increase your Course Score, take as much high scoring photos as you can before you reach the teleportation point at the end or run out of photo memory.
Your Course Score will be shown after Professor Mirror evaluates your snaps from the course.
You can also check your Course Scores for each level and the Total Course Score in the Internet section of the Lab menu.
If you are on a course that has a Legendary Pokemon or an Illumina Pokemon, you can take multiple photos of them to boost your Course Score. Photos of these Pokemon generally score better compared to regular Pokemon.

To boost your course score further, you need to take a photo of each Pokemon species in a single run. You may also need to plan your run and note the Pokemon that require some steps for them to appear in the area.
For courses with alternate routes, take the route with the most number of Pokemon available.
A great way to rack up points for Course Score is to use Burst Mode.
If you see a Pokemon exhibiting behavior that yields a 4 star photo, pause the game and turn on Burst Mode, and quickly take a photo of the Pokemon.
You will receive the Keeping Score Research Title for getting a total course score of 30,000,000 points or more.
You will receive the High Scorer Research Title for getting a total course score of 40,000,000 points or more.
