Soft Skills User Guide Overview

Ebadges are earned as the learner advances through the WIN Career Readiness System courses. They indicate instructional progress, not instructional mastery or completion. The ebadges will be automatically displayed on the learner dashboard when earned. They are an icon, not a document; therefore, ebadges are not designed to be downloaded or printed.  The type and number of ebadges will be different for each WIN Career Readiness course because the instructional design and learning objectives are different for each tool.


When learners complete the pretest (no minimum score required), complete the course AND score 80% or higher on the posttest, one ebadge will be earned per module. There are 4 potential ebadges in this course.

Certificates will indicate mastery or completion of instructional content, not just instructional progress like the ebadges.  Certificates will be earned as the learner reaches instructional benchmarks. These certificates can be downloaded and printed, saved and emailed. Learners can access their certificates by choosing CERTIFICATES on the top of the dashboard.  As certificates are earned, the certificate icon will display a printer symbol.  By clicking on the printer symbol, the certificates can be downloaded for printing, saving or emailing. 


When a learner completes all learning modules and scores 80% or higher on the posttest for each module, a certificate is earned. There is 1 potential certificate for this course. Complete the pretest (no minimum score required), complete the course (view every screen) and score 80% or higher on the posttests for all four modules: Communicating Effectively, Conveying Professionalism, Promoting Teamwork and Collaboration, and Thinking Critically and Solving Problems.
