Blackboard (Faculty) - Achievements: About Achievements
This document provides an overview of achievements.
The Achievements tool allows instructors and course designers to designate criteria for issuing rewards to students. The two types of Achievements, Certificates and Badges, can be issued for course completions, milestones, or other custom-designated actions.
Achievements are associated with rules integrated into certain activities including: attempts on assignments or assessments; specific grades on assignments, assessments, discussion boards, wikis, blogs, and journals; and marked Review status on course content items.
Mechanisms exist that allow students to monitor their progress and determine what remains in respect to meeting the specified criteria and receiving an Achievement. Students can print or save Achievements they receive.
