Achievement badges are a way to measure and monitor a student’s positive contributions and growth throughout the course. Badges are visible to other users and are an indication of that student’s aptitude and relevant contributions to the course community.
There are three types of badges; Quizmaster, Communicator, and Favorable Rating. All students will start with a starter level on their badges and can earn promotions to bronze, silver, and gold by attaining the achievement levels defined below.
Favorable Rating Badge
Nearly all modules will have a multiple-choice quiz at the end. The quiz must be completed in order for a student to move on to the next module. It is recommended that a student allows approximately 15 – 20 minutes to take the quiz. If a student would like to exit the quiz they may come back to it at any time – they are not timed. A student has the option of revisiting the quiz as much as they like after a quiz is completed. Completed quiz questions are then added to the bank of the random question generator.
A student’s first chosen answer option will be the result tabulated for the quizmaster badge. Take your time with these quizzes – the questions are not easy and they reflect the difficulty and language of an actual AP exam.
Once an answer is chosen the student will have the ability to view the content in the module relevant to the question or to view an explanation. Then, the student may attempt to answer the question a second, third, or fourth time. Keep in mind that only the first attempt at an answer affects the quizmaster badge.
Random Question Generator (RQG)
The random question generator is designed so that students can practice random questions from completed modules throughout the school year. The format of the questions will look identical to the quiz – they will have a view content and view explanation button – but these answers will not be calculated into the quizmaster badge. Only questions from completed quizzes will be available in the RQG bank.
The RQG will have very few questions in the beginning of the course, but it will eventually fill with over 300 multiple choice questions. The RQG is a great tool to keep sharp and proficient in previously learned content and will prove very useful in preparing for the AP exam in spring.
