Entering information for BadgeCheck Verification 

  1. Badge consumers are people who have an interest in your achievement and with whom you may choose to share your badge (e.g. college admissions, human resources, program educators, etc.).

  2. When the Verify Badge button is selected, a URL containing a link to the badge information and verification engine will open in a new window with some of the information pre-populated.

  3. In most cases, the Assertion URL (Badge share URL) will prepopulate in the Badge Object Reference field.
  4. Alternatively, you may wish to upload your badge image, complete with meta-data, to the verification engine. 



  5. You may wish to add additional information, such as the recipient information.
    1. In most cases, this will be the email address of the badge earner.
      1. Identifiers may also be a telephone number, URL, or JSON-LD ID.
  6. You may add as many recipient identifiers as you like and the verification tool will determine which identifier is associated with the badge (typically, only one).
    1. Select the Add button for each identifier you wish to check.
    2. Once you've added all the identifiers, select the Submit button.
