How to grow your EP for Home experience level
EP Teacher Certification represents the skill level of the user, taking into account how experienced they are in using key features.
Increasing your teacher certification is a great way to motivate yourself to use a range of the different features available to you.
Increase your Certification Level by earning Experience Points (XP)! Many activities you complete give you XP, and once you've done a certain amount, your Certification Level will increase!
Activities you can complete and the corresponding XP you receive for doing so are as follows:
Certain activities only give you XP once per day, specifically:
- Logging into the Control Panel
- Cheering your students on
- Giving feedback on a student's Smart Lesson answer
- Comparing assessment results.
To encourage you to try all parts of Education Perfect, you receive double the Experience Points the first time you complete an activity. For example, the first time you create a Smart Lesson you will receive 40 XP instead of the standard 20.
