Gamification Competition Enhancement
1) Competition/Scoring Leaderboards should be configurable by User Type or User Group. Not all users in the system have access to the same level or amount of training content, so there is no way that everyone could possibly compete fairly on an equal playing field. User Type A vs User Type A OR User Group X vs User Group Y. You can’t have User Type A compete vs User Type B, that would be like a Ford Pinto competing in the Daytona 500, what’s the point, there’s no motivation to succeed and win because you know you can’t.
2) A user’s point accumulation should be based on a formula (Points associated with course, actual exam score achieved, how quickly the user completed the training from the date of launch or (due date minus completion date). This would incent users to complete the training as quickly as possible with the highest score possible to earn the greatest number of points possible and stimulate real competition, based on REAL applied efforts! I have an example spread sheet which shows how the points are calculated.
3) An option to create our own custom badges and list our own prizes based on number of points achieved would also be cool.
