Brief: ETS Introduces New Digital Badges for Learning-Outcome Assessments
Educational Testing Service (ETS) is now offering digital badges for students who demonstrate specific learning outcomes on the ETS Proficiency Profile and iSkills assessments. The badges can be added to a Mozilla Backpack to help test takers manage and share their accomplishments with an unlimited number of recipients for employment, education or lifelong learning.
Students taking the ETS Proficiency Profile online standard form can earn an electronic badge based on their performance in all four skill areas: mathematics, writing, reading and critical thinking. Badges come in three performance levels that are awarded based on score range. Students taking the iSkills assessment can also earn an electronic badge based on their performance in the various task areas defined by the ICT Literacy Framework.
