What an amazing idea, Matthew! This is super inspiring for me. As an elementary educator, I envision using this on a smaller scale (for example, the steps to mastering a particular unit). These individualized mastery plans could inform center and small group activities, and to help me with differentiation. Students could cover each spot with a sticker once they demonstrated mastery.

Sure! Or they could design their own picture/badge to glue onto an overall "competency chart" to show their progress and what they've learned. Getting students to creatively depict the critical aspects of knowledge in a pictorial or symbolic form is a great measure for deep comprehension!
