Graphical Design: How the individual badges look and are related to one another. Is brand well represented.Badge is exemplary and earners are very attracted to the badge. Earning the badge is coveted. The badge shows consideration for and adds to all the design attributes already described in the notable and working badge design. Badge implements all the attributes of a working badge with the addition of a strong graphical appeal, elements are legible and are of scale, good size and use appropriate fonts. Badge is not too busy. Strong integration with the internal and external badge systems. Badge system that include levels of accomplishment, ranking or progression are well integrated into badge design.Badge design is attractive and comprehensively establishes a brand, community and/or curriculum awareness. Earners are attracted to completing the criteria and earning the badge(s).badge has simple design, with little brand or curriculum affiliation. Monocolor badge with simple graphical themes. No integration with other internal or external badge systems. Services the basic graphical needs of a png or svg file.http://jessicaklein.blogspot.ca/2013/01/design-feedback-for-badge-systems.html

Organization: How the badge system looks as a whole and is understood as a system. Are levels (if applicable) clearly defined. Is the learning journey and awarding of badges easily understood. Does the badge system hold value within the community it serves?The badge system implements all the attributes of the notable and working systems with the addition of being mapped into other similar learning, achievement or recognition curriculums. The badge sytems organization is modeled by other badge systems. It is used as an example of badge system organization. Many people have earned many badges from within the system, people who have earned the full collection of badges are considered masters by their peers.The badge system makes sense as the badges relate to one another, in their graphical design, and in defining a learning, achievement or recognition journey. The whole badge system is visualized so it is easy to understand which badges to earn and in what order to accomplish the desired learning, achievement or recognition. Earning one or many badges from within the system is considered an accomplishment by peers and community members.The badge stands alone or is part of a very small (two to five) badge system. Single level badge hierarchy / network or existence of simple meta and micro relationship for earning the badge. How the small collection of badges relate to one another is easily understood. People are attracted to earning these badges.A single badge system, where the badge is well designed from a graphical perspective and how it can be earned on its own and within other learning, achievement or recognition journeys.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Barnstars

Criteria: Each badge stands on its own, or is it a part of a larger learning, achievement or recognition journey. The objective is well represented in the badge or collective badge system criteria. The criteria provides flexibility so a badge can be reused in different learning, achievement or recognition contexts. The badge criteria accommodates for its potential expiration.Badge criteria fits well within multiple learning, achievement or recognition contexts and applies well across communities, events, curriculum and cultures. The learning context may change and the criteria still applies. The criteria is developed and written in such a way that it is timeless; earning the badge multiple times through time makes sense. The badge criteria does not expire.The badge criteria allows the badge to stand on its own, fit within the system it has been developed, and can be used within other badge systems. Criteria seems timeless in that it is constructed and worded in such a way that it does not expire.Criteria to earn the badge is comprehensive in that it describes different learning, achievement or recognition approaches, associated tasks and outcomes. The criteria has one or more examples or completions for reference.Criteria to earn the badge is well articulated and easily understood. Criteria attribute within badge meta-data resolves to URL.

Technical Integration: How badge system integrates with the hosted learning, achievement or recognition system.All the attributes of the working and notable technical intergrations are present with the addition of Open API's to get data and integrate with other badge, participation, and accreditation systems. Technical innovation is present with how the badge system is integrated with learning and curriculum. Integration and consideration of analytics is present within API's and open data. Personal privacy is also honoured within open API's and analytics data.Badge system is well integrated with the related materials, online resources, tasks and learning, achievement or recognition journey. Badge system allow for easy integration with Personal Learning Environment (PLE) or social site (facebook, linkedin, blogs, etc. In other words it is easy to embed badges into the sites where people want to display badges. The user experience of achieving and being awarded badges is easily understood. Badges are sometimes awarded stealthfully as people complete accomplishments, prove learning, participate in community or events. Badges are issued from either; a 3rd party issuing platform or the course, community or individual(s) dedicated hosting platform. Badge meta-data, including criteria and evidence, is hosted to allow flexibility in referring URLs. The ability to verify / assert badge validity has been implemented.Badges are issued from a 3rd party public and open badge issuing platform. Little integration with the course, community of practice, or participants sites are present. Associated URL's resolve back to working and open URL's (no login required).

System Integration: How the badge system integrates with related and similar curriculum and badges systems. Are applicable standards being applied. The exemplary badge becomes the defacto standard for accrediting a subject, community or event domain.A notably integrated badge system implements all the attributes of the related working system with the addition of it utilizing appropriate resources (educational or otherwise) from these other badge systems, these resources are adequately cross referenced.Badge system shows consideration to other related community, curriculum and standards. These related badge systems are easily recognized and referenced.Badge fits well within its own badge system and related curriculum. Standards applied are local to the organization, community, group or an individuals badge system.http://erinknight.com/post/42841860849/an-open-distributed-system-for-badge-validation

Endorsement: Is the badge system recognized by other organizations, communitie, individuals and/or systems. Does it fit with previous badging and credentialling systems.Multiple endorsements from previously endorsed, proven and reputal organizations, communities or individuals. The matrix of endorsements and second and third degree endorsements are extensive. Multiple endorsements from cross-industry / cross-subject organizations, communities and/or individuals. Endorsed by one to five organizations, communities or individuals of unconfirmed reputation.endorsement not applicablehttps://docs.google.com/file/d/0BwJ_PQhV0lJTSnYtQzV5Q0FxNDA/edit?usp=sharing

Development Team: broadness of experience held within the badge system development team. All skills and knowledge for building the badge system reside within two to seven people. Some team members will possess multiple skills and knowledge. Team requires strong community building, pedagogical, and/or curriculum development skills to evaluate comprehensiveness of badge system, criteria and assessment methods.all skills and knowledge for building badge system reside within one to three people.Reference Carla Casilli's paper on Badge System Design Principles https://docs.google.com/document/d/1A6T3OcB7R-1sobaJNiDbu5-wssrmQB2HUZKw3qzy2LQ/edit
