    1. Scope

    Standard for the design, development, delivery, issuance, management and display of achievement-based digital badges. This standard addresses those digital badges that are issued to an individual after demonstration of achievement of badge requirements related to learning, skills and/or competencies established by a badge issuer. The digital badge can represent learning, skills and competencies gained through both formal and informal mechanisms, including but not limited to K-12 education, collegiate education, professional education or credentialing, workplace learning, and prior learning assessment. It does not cover digital badges issued to organizations, nor does it cover digital badges received without any demonstration of achievement of badge requirements and verification of such by a badge issuer This standard will: Establish a common lexicon for the nascent but growing trend of digital badges Identify the attributes of a quality badge issuer Identify the attributes of a quality system for the design, development, delivery, issuance, management, and display of achievement-based digital badges Form the basis of a system of recognition or accreditation of digital badge issuers
