*Note: By default the Achievement Points Per problem is set to 5. This value is such that if the default level thresholds are used in a course with approximately 180-200 problems per semester then most students will get to level 9 or 10 by the end of the course. If you use fewer or more than 200 problems in your courses then you should adjust the Achievement Points Per Problem value in ratio to 200. If you add in additional custom achievements, or change the number of points awarded for achievements then this also affects how quickly students will earn levels.

If you do want to have challenge problems then create a set called Challenge with 10 problems and the challenge achievements will work automatically.
