Points & Levels
How users earn points & get to next levels
Points are earned by completing a story (100 points earned per story completed) and by completing the activities in a story (100 points per activity completed).
Story scoring is based on the following formula: Total Story Score + 100 points = Points earned
Example: A drag and drop activity will earn a user 100 points. By correctly answering 4/5 questions in a quiz, another 400 points can be earned, PLUS they get the 100 points for completing the story. Based on this example, a user would earn 600 points for completing the story and would therefore achieve a Level 1 status.
On a platform app, each user will see their "Current Level" (under Stats in Analytics). The higher the level, the harder it is to get to the next level.
Level 1-4 (BEGINNER): 0 - 4800 points Level 5-9 (NOVICE): 7500 - 24,300 points Level 10-14 (WELL-READ): 30,000 - 58,800 points Level 15 - 19 (ACHIEVER): 67,500 - 108,300 points
Users can see their Grade (under Your Stats in Analytics on the app). Grading works as follows:
A++ = 100% A+ = 95% A = 95-80% B+ = 80-75% B = 75-70% C+ = 70-65% C = 65-60% D+ = 60-55% D = 55-50% F+ = 50-45% F = 45-40% FF = below 40%
When a user completes a story, they have the option to re-do the story. Each attempt is archived and the most recent attempt will be valid. How attempts and time affect the ranking The number of attempts, i.e. number of times a user chooses to re-do a story, becomes a deciding factor when they are tied with someone else on the app leaderboard. For example, a tied leaderboard may look like this: 1st: John 1000 points (in 2 attempts) 2nd: Jane 1000 points (in 3 attempts)
The amount of time taken to complete a story will also affect a tied ranking.
For example: 1st: Jane 1000 points, 2 attempts in 10secs 2nd: John 1000 points, 2 attempts in 15secs
