Gritcoins are an award for completing lessons independent from experience points. Each time a student completes a lesson in either Keyboarding Foundations curriculum for the first time, they will earn 5 Gritcoins. 

Students can spend Gritcoins on new avatars, with three different categories of avatars with different costs. To access these, the student would click on the Gritcoin icon from their dashboard header.
