Standards Based Grading Gamified With Badges

Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is quite an interesting article that will reward careful reading and will reward even more following the background reading and working with the samples yourself. But be prepared to spend some time on it. In a nutshell, it basically takes standards-based student data reports and awards badges based on their achievements. It also proposes a mechanism of 'titles', rather than simnple badges, indicating levels of achievement: "what if we had hierarchical titles that can be earned as you get more badges? Like how some games start you off as a 'townsperson' and move up to “King” or how in one of Alice’s classes you begin as a 'Noob' and move up to 'Super Genius'" You can use Jon Orr’s Master Spreadsheet to try this out yourself.
