Description: 

Thirty-seven students in a 4th year Sales Management course had the opportunity to earn two digital badges in a pilot project tied to information literacy mastery. One badge was for Critical Thinking, the other for Content Analysis. The pilot was to assess student interest and engagement in digital badging at the college level. Students completed several activities (e.g. online videos and tutorials) and assignments (e.g. annotated bibliography) before submitting a final research report. As it is critical that digital badges have an assessment component, students had to achieve 80% or higher in three individual assessments to be awarded the badges.
