Mr Trussell Maths: How To Create A Student Badge Leaderboard Using Google Apps

Through research of the benefits of gamification, I decided that I wanted to be able to award badges to students to certify their skills and urge them to support others and develop skills. Mozilla Open Badges seemed like a good place to start, but it was tough to tailor to what we needed, and would be another set of login credentials for students to remember/set up.
