Hello Prodigy teachers, parents and wizards! Our team of wizards here at Prodigy have been hard at work, making their own magic behind the scenes, and we are excited to bring their work to you!
We are pleased to announce our badge update to the Prodigy community. Through this exciting update, our Prodigy wizards will gain a style of achievement when mastering skills throughout their time in Prodigy.
After the tutorial, you will start to receive notifications in the question window as you start to master skills and progress through the content. Each math skill that you master contributes towards leveling up a badge for that topic (i.e. 2D Shapes, Angles, etc).
There are two notifications that announce a your progress. Both of these are listed below.
Skill Mastery Award
This is earned when you achieve mastery of a skill and move on to the next skill.
Badge Ranked Up
This badge is earned when you master enough skills of the same topic to rank up a badge. It takes more mastered skills to achieve each additional badge rank.
Badge Collection Menu
Now that the game has a badge system, we have added a menu that shows your progress and all of the education badges have earned. (Who wouldn't want to see all the badges they've collected?!)
Badges are grouped into collections. Each collection is represented by a gemstone -- the more sides/vertices and polish a badge collection has, the more difficult the skills are to master within it. The same badge can appear in multiple collections: i.e., mastering simple addition skills will progress the “stone” addition badge, while mastering complex addition skills will progress the “diamond” badge.
Badge Ranked Up
Each badge in a collection has multiple levels that can be unlocked. The progress bar indicates the number of skill masteries needed to achieve the next rank. Ranks are indicated by the pink dots beneath the badge icons.
We sure hope you like the changes that we've made! As always our team is hard at work to make Prodigy more exciting, engaging and fun.
