Personal Bests and Badges

Personal Bests

Every time a new activity is completed, it is compared to personal bests in speed and accuracy.

When students restart an already completed activity, they are shown their targets and their best recorded score. It’s up to them to try to outdo themselves!

When a personal best is broken, this achievement is highlighted with a medal and a message that a new record has been set.
The student can click the Show all results for this activity link on the screen that appears when an activity has been completed to view the activity history and their previous results.

Badges

Notifications

Each time a student obtains a badge, a temporary notification is displayed in the window.

The number of new badges obtained is shown in a small blue circle over the notification bell. By clicking the notification bell, a menu appears showing the list of recent notifications.

Each badge shown provides a shortcut to the Badges section, where the student’s full collection of badges can be seen.

List of badges

Students access the Badges section in the Results tab.

You can also access this section from a student account by clicking the Badges tab.

Mystery Badge It’s a secret. Students only receive a clue.

From the management interface, you can find out how students can collect the mystery badges. Go to a student account and click on the Badges tab. Scroll down to find the mystery badges, which are identified by a question mark.

Limited Edition Badges

Limited edition badges are the only badges that you can unlock only within a specific timeframe corresponding to a particular event. The challenges are displayed in grey on the badges page as soon as they’re available. The arrival of a limited edition badge is also announced on Typing Pal’s Facebook page. Follow us so you don’t miss anything!

Once a challenge has been successfully completed, the badge will be displayed in colour at the top of the list. If the challenge is not completed, the grey badge will disappear at the end of the relevant timeframe. Given their fleeting availability, limited edition badges are not counted in the progress bar.
