Staying motivated to study on a daily basis is tough. But forming and sticking with great study habits is of utmost importance if you want to reach your goals! With this in mind, Picmonic has received an upgrade designed to help keep you on track. Now, when you take actions that result in you learning content, you’ll earn eXPerience points – or XP for short. You can also unlock achievement-based badges by completing different challenges. Read on for the details!
When you learn on Picmonic, you earn points, and we call them experience points, or XP for short.
You earn XP any time you:
• Watch a Picmonic on Educational mode
• Answer a Quiz question correctly
• Vote on Quiz distractors
• Submit a False Bounty
You can track your XP earned via the graph at the bottom of the Daily Goal tile on your Home Screen (via Picmonic.com).
A Daily Goal Streak is the number of days in a row you have reached your XP (experience point) goal on Picmonic.
If you are logged in, you can see your XP goal on your Daily Goal Tile (via Picmonic.com). When you hit your daily goal, the flame icon on your Tile will light up orange. With this new motivation to keep up with studying, we know you’ll be successful!
You can update your Daily XP goal by clicking “Edit Goal” on the bottom of your Daily Goal Tile.
Achievements can be earned by completing various tasks on Picmonic like:
• Watching a specific number of Picmonics
• Maintaining a streak for a set number of days
• Earning a certain number of XP in a single day
Once you unlock an achievement, you’ll see it turn from grey to something a bit more exciting!
