Demonstrating Student Mastery with Digital Badges and Portfolios

By David Niguidula

InĀ Demonstrating Student Mastery with Digital Badges and Portfolios , David Niguidula shows how students can meet standards and express their individuality through digital badges and portfolios. Building off an essential question - What do schools want their students to know and be able to do? - he then shows how schools can implement a proficiency-based approach to student learning that has been successfully field-tested in districts across the United States.

In manageable steps, readers are guided through the implementation process.

The book shows readers how to:

  • Connect standards to badges.
  • Create portfolio worthy tasks.
  • Develop common rubrics and a common understanding of what work is considered "good enough"
  • Guide students in curating the elements of their portfolios.
  • Promote authentic student reflection on their work.
