i am working in Moodle 3.5 and i am helping an academic with awarding badges to students for hours completed.
Each student must complete 8hrs of research each year. To verify this the student will submit the work to be validated by the academic. However the student may not complete all 8 hrs all in one go. As an incentive the academic wants to use badging to recognise the students current process. As such i have been asked to create a number of badges showing how much research they have achieved up to this point.
i need a system whereby the academic can attribute hours to each student an when they cross each threshold (e.g 2hr, 4hrs, 6hrs, 8hrs) they will be issued a badge. At the end of the year each student will have all four badges. how do i do this, i want it to be as automated as possible?
I have experimented with assignments and linking grade to hours and then using course completion to issue a badge. e.g course is complete when assignment 1 has been completed. if student has completed the course and got a minimum score of 4 issue them the 4hr badge. However this only works once as the student can only complete the course once. This means that if they were to submit further evidence the system would not issue any further badges.
Thanks in advance.
