What Are Energy Points?

You are probably wondering what Energy Points are and how you can earn more.  When you participate in Khan Academy you earn Energy Points for practicing math.  Energy points measure your effort in the Academy. You earn more energy points for pushing the edge of your knowledge. It is important to remember that the points don’t measure how good you are at math.  They measure how hard you work.

As of 1/1/2013, watching a video can earn up to 750 points for completion and each problem done earns a base of 15 energy points per problem; this base slowly decreases down to 5 energy points (but no fewer) per problem if you have a  long streak of correct answers in an exercise (demonstrating impressive proficiency) and continue working on it.

What About Badges?

Badges are rewards for behaviors – some related to points, but not necessarily (e.g., inefficiencies on exercises, speed, or other behaviors like building community or engaging with computer science).
