Competencies review the level of understanding and general progress of students/learners in specific subjects and areas during the course of their learning. The most known type of education to employ this is Competency-based education(CBE) for short, whereas an individual can be tracked on specific skillsets(Example – AI Learning is a form of competency-based education under the Information Technology/Computer Science umbrella.)

(Note: If the Course completion block is added, students can see their progress during the whole course):
Badges: Badges can be automatically or manually awarded to students as a form of motivation or to outline a trait a specific student has achieved during the course. A criteria of achievement can be set, which once completed can motivate the student and allow him to additionally excel.
It can easily be accessed by selecting the Badges button:
