Are there categories of your badge types? Webmaker badges tend to fall into participation, skill, and achievement.Is this a full skill badge or a mini skill badge? Are these incremental badges? See also column G and J.Who is responsible for overseeing and "owning" this badge? Sometimes there may be someone who oversees the badge system and individual people own certain badges.If you have a variety of badges, you indicate who's responsible for designing the visual here.This content explains the purpose of the badge. Briefly describe the purpose of the badge.Very important! You might want to have a system for naming. Now's the time to start!

These can be creative or straightforward or a mix. Consider both your badge earner as well as the badge consuming public when naming your badge.
Does this badge have levels? Badge A level 1, Badge A level 2, Badge A level 3, etc. If so, how do they work?Does this badge accumulate to other badges? If so, indicate the badge to which they accumulate here.What is the estimate time for someone to earn this badge? As you build out your system, you may find that length of time to earn plays a major role in your system design.Are there minimum requirements for the badge? Does someone need to earn other badges prior to this one?Explains the badge in a simple, clear way. Tweetable description that helps a badge system designer understand what they're working with across different badges.This is the content that your earner will see when the badge is clicked on. It's also the content that a badge consumer will see when they click on a badge.Explanation of type of assessment. Can be Expert, Peer, Self, Algorithmic, etc.This section should indicate where and how the badge will be issued. For webmaker badges, they were issued within Thimble. There are a variety of options available here: from your site, from OpenBadger, from another platform, etc.This indicates when someone will be notified that they received a badge. If at all possible, it's good to let folks know that they have the opportunity to earn a badge prior to awarding it to them.

There's an exception to this, though, when you want to issue a stealth badge.
This is the content that will appear in your software to alert people that they have earned a badge. A version of this appeared in Thimble when someone earned a badge.This is where evidence would reside for a specific badgeimage file can go here (useful but not required)
