Student assessment and incentives are critical aspects of the educational process. A key ingredient to improving student level in acquiring knowledge. For the assessment to be effective, an incentive must be tied to the achievement of the process becomes meaningless. A predominant incentive is a negative approach, in which the student will suffer negative consequences if they do badly on the assessment. The negative reinforcement has been proven short-lived and requires much more effort to maintain than its positive counterpart. One of the most successful positive reinforcement mechanisms known is gamification, in which the process is turned into a game with a positive reward system. Implementing such a gamification system was very difficult to achieve due to the inadequacy of supporting technology. In this research, we propose a novel approach of using Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) as an incentive mechanism tied to the student assessment. Our approach allows positive incentive reinforcement through granting bragging rights and special access based on the NFTs holders. We demonstrate how effective and cost-efficient the system is.
