In this paper we describe several characterizations of basic finite-dimensional k-algebras A stratified for all linear orders, and classify their graded algebras as tensor algebras satisfying some extra property. We also discuss whether for a given preorder ≼, F(≼Δ), the category of A-modules with ≼Δ-filtrations, is closed under cokernels of monomorphisms, and classify quasi-hereditary algebras satisfying this property.
