Keep in mind...
Creating a badge will incentivize students to complete a series of activity requirements. Badges allow you to track student progress. Badges are also added to a student's scorecard once they have completed the requirements of the badge.
Badges can have shared activity requirements.
*Badge and achievement are interchangeable terms. Read more in the Achievements (Badges) support article.
To create a custom achievement/badge:
1. First begin by ensuring that you have all of the badge's activity requirements in Suitable before building out the achievement.
2. Navigate to the Achievements tab on the left-side toolbar.
3. Click on 'Add New Achievement' in the top right of the Achievements page
- This will bring you to the Details page within the badge creation wizard.
4. Here, you'll be able to enter in the title of the achievement...
5. As well as the description.
- In the badge description, we recommend including any incentives that students may earn for completing the achievement, as well as any pertinent links and important formatting. You can read more about formatting your achievement description here.
6. Next, you'll decide if the badge should be a Featured or a Milestone achievement
- Featured or Milestone is defined differently by each program, and will represent which tab the badge will live in on the Achievements page.
