This Badge System Design challenge is focused around a rubric that has been created to guide badge system design. The rubric is not meant to evaluate existing badge systems, but to guide and prompt thinking around the creation of new badge systems.
The badge systems design rubric can be found at this embedded link, and should be considered a work that is never finished, yet always useful. Digital badges and badge systems design is new, evolving and innovating. And through each iteration becomes broader, better understood, and more comprehensive. If you have comments, or suggested improvements, for the rubric please do not hesitate to provide them here.
A number of the tasks will be requesting you evaluate the work of your peers currently taking this same P2Pu challenge, only they are a few steps ahead of you. You can also expect learners further into this challenge to reach-out to you to evaluate and discuss their work within this challenge.
Having students peer assess each others work is a theme within all of the P2Pu, and the tasks within this challenge identified for peer assessment have been chosen to encourage engagement, deepen learning, and to improve badge system design.
Once you have finished reviewing and evaluating one of the other students work, you will need to issue them a badge confirming your acceptance and understanding of their work. If you need to learn more about how to quickly issue a badge I suggest you work through the School of Badges companion course; 102 Quick Issue.
Spend some time moving around in this challenge; quickly review each task and identify how the different tasks are linked to each other from a review, evaluation and peer engagement perspective. Enjoy, reach out to others, discuss...
Review the Badge System Design rubric and offer a suggestion to its improvement. The improvement could simply be fixing a spelling or gramatical error, or could be adding a whole new row. No suggestion is too small or too big...
