Personal Bests and Badges

Personal Bests

Every time a new activity is completed, it is compared to personal bests in speed and accuracy.

When they restart an already completed activity, students are shown their targets and their best recorded score. It’s up to them to try and outdo themselves!

When a personal best is broken, this achievement is highlighted with a medal and a message that a new record has been set.

Badges

Notifications

Each time a student obtains a badge, a temporary notification is displayed in the window.

The number of new badges is shown in a small blue circle next to the notification bell. By clicking the notification bell, a menu appears showing the list of recent notifications.

Each badge shown provides a shortcut to the Badges section, where the student’s full collection of badges can be seen.

Students access the Badges section in the Results tab.

You can also access this section from a student account by clicking the Badges tab.
