Vector Solutions Launches Innovative Badging Feature to Better Track and Manage Educator Professional Development

Badges Help Increase Staff Accountability and Recognize Mastered Skills and Competencies

Tampa, FL - June 10, 2021 - Vector Solutions, the leading provider of software solutions for learning, operational readiness, workforce management, and risk reduction for the education industry, has launched an innovative new Badging feature for educators as part of its Vector Evaluations+ performance management and professional development (PD) tracking solution. This new Badging feature increases accountability and more readily recognizes mastered skills and competencies of school staff.

As part of Vector’s Evaluations+ web-based solution that helps busy administrators easily plan, manage, and track professional development activities, Badges will help reinforce school-wide initiatives, motivate professional growth, and allow educators and staff to showcase their achievements. A Badges Dashboard also allows teachers and staff to see badges earned, imported, partially completed, and available to earn. Evaluators, district staff, and coaches can then quickly identify those who have earned Badges to serve as mentors and facilitators. 

“Every educator deserves the opportunity to do their best work, showcase their impressive achievements, and learn new skills in their pursuit for professional development and growth,” said Alex Berry, Executive Vice President of Vector Solutions. “Our new customizable Badging feature allows educators and staff to support the personal growth of employees while also reinforcing district and school needs, which ultimately will help them even better serve their students.”

Badges can be awarded for both in-person and online professional development events as well as Vector Solutions training courses, and badging features allow users to:

  • Create a badge using custom names, descriptions, criteria to earn the badge, expiration dates (if any), and badge icons
  • Earn a badge based on single or multiple flexible criteria
  • Create your own microcredentials with criteria to earn a badge for proficiency
  • Share verifiable professional achievements digitally using IMS Global Open Badges standards
