        Students reach a new Level for every 10,000 XP they earn

        Roughly speaking, if students complete all of their Compulsory, XP Boost and Target homeworks they should reach a new XP Level every term, and if they just complete their Compulsory homework they should reach a new Level every academic year. 

        XP Levels in Sparx go up to 25. Currently the level does not increase past this, however the XP total will keep increasing so for every 10,000XP a student will achieve another level - i.e. 260,000 = level 26, 270,000 = level 27 and so on. We have created certificates for up to level 50.

        Note: XP are accumulated across academic years, so students will keep their XP and Levels when they move from one year to the next
