Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you so much for your response! Much appreciated

My next questions are about completions and badges.

1. What criteria was used to mark users as Completed? I am trying to build a prediction algorithm that measures the risk of drop out/successful completion by each week of the course. 

I am trying to define a meaningful dependent variable to measure a completion. Can you provide any insight here?  

2. Also, there appear to be some discrepancies between data and the description. Badges table (mdl_badge_issued.csv) does not have badge names, only unique hash values. Which makes it impossible to see what type of badge students received. Is there a way to get these values?

Once again, thank you for you help.

P.S. I will be happy to share my results if you are interested.
