Check Windows Experience Index Score in Windows 10

Windows Experience Index provides score to your system based on your Computer's performance. These scores aren't accurate but it'll give you satisfying idea about your system performance or if you should look for improvements in your system. It was first introduced in Vista and used as primary benchmarking tool in Windows 7 and 8, but it was removed in Windows 8.1 and 10.

Well, they haven't removed it completely. You can still run the assessment and check your system score. There are various third party applications to check the score but I won't recommend you to use those tools. Why should you bother using third party tools if you can check it yourself?!
