What Are Rewards?
ClassHero provides unique incentives to learn math in the form of Hero Badges. These badges are earned through frequency of practice sessions by students. Each badge has a number on it corresponding to the number of sessions it will take to achieve it.
Every award is made up of puzzle pieces; the number on the hero badge displays how many pieces it is made of. Students must collect all of the puzzle pieces to earn the reward. Once all the puzzle pieces are collected, the award will be assembled on the students screen. At this time, hand the student their award and congratulate them on their achievement.
When a student first signs into the ClassHero student app, they will be prompted to select their first Hero Badge to work towards. We recommend encouraging students to start by selecting a badge that takes less time to earn. Earning a reward sooner provides quicker gratification and encourages continued effort in the lessons.
The picture above shows the Hero Badge for Grace Hopper. Her badge takes 15 sessions to complete. If students are only practicing once per day (recommended), than this badge will take 15 days for a student to complete. This might be too long and discourage students from attaining their first badge.
At anytime, students may choose to replace the award they working towards and select a new one. When students change their award all the puzzle pieces they earned for their previous award will be transferred to their new one. If the student has more puzzle pieces than their new award is worth than they will earn that award upon switching.
