Achievements allow faculty to issue rewards to students in the forms of badges and certificates.
Faculty can create release criteria for issuing rewards so that students can see what they can earn and what is required of them to do so. Achievements help emphasize learning progression through defined goals.
A custom image may be uploaded for a badge.
If you choose to delete an achievement which has already been earned by a student, the associated reward will also be deleted.
You can see all of the Achievements defined in your course, as well as a count of recipients for each of the achievements, in the Achievements tool under Course Tools in the Control Panel.
Clicking the Recipients link shows details about those students who have earned the achievement. Clicking a student's name will present that student's view of the My Achievements page.
The Date Received lets instructors know when the students saw the notification of their earning of the achievement. Typically, this is immediately upon earning, but in cases where instructor grading or manual awarding was involved, the date received is when a student was shown their achievement reward.
