Instructors: Follow along with the badges students are earning in the Progress tab of their Badgr app. Enable the leaderboard for an element of gamification.

Students: Can earn badges in modules and view their own progress in the Badgr app.

Tracking course progress as an instructor

Once an instructor has configured objectives for their course and connected badges to them, then students can begin completing module requirements to earn their badges. A table of student progress through the course's badges will be viewable in the Progress tab. Each time instructors view a page (of 35 students), Badgr will check to make sure the data is fully up-to-date, containing the latest badges students have qualified for.

Instructors may use the search bar at the top of the tab to find a specific student or scroll through the list of students as a whole. They can also request to be emailed a report of up-to-date badge earning data with the Export to CSV option.

Badgr automatically awards badges when students meet the module completion requirements. However, Badgr does not maintain a constant connection to Canvas, so progress must be checked by scrolling through the progress page 35 students at a time or by exporting the CSV file to trigger badge awards. See Triggering badge awards.

Instructors may click a badge to see badge details for an individual student. If a student asks about their badge (or would like to have it emailed to them again), the instructor can click the Email student button to send the student a notification containing their badge. If the instructor determines that a student should not have been awarded a badge, they may revoke it with the Revoke badge button.

If an instructor needs to revoke a badge, they should make sure they change the student's completion eligibility in the gradebook so that the student isn't re-awarded the badge the next time progress is checked.
