我来自中国,也是一名大学生。据我所知,很多学校都要求学生们做公益活动。
如果BOINC或其他项目组可以提供打印表单之类的功能来记录个人的成就,并能被校方认可这样的公益活动,学生们在了解之后必然会涌入,并通过这个工作完成他们的公益——因为这是如此的简单而有效。每个人都可以利用自己的空闲时间献出爱心,并即时记录。同时,一个正式感的证书也可以激励我们,把这项活动坚持下去。这不需要太复杂,仅仅是一个证书页面,带有数据统计和授权的认证。

但是,这或许需要BOINC或是项目组的协助——提供一个公益活动的证明。如果可以的话,我也会尽我所能把这项公益推荐给我的朋友们。

时间紧迫没有来得及写英文版本,请暂时原谅机器翻译中的错误。

I come from China, am also a college student. As far as I know, many schools require students to do public welfare activities.
If the BOINC and other project groups provides functions like a printed form to record personal achievement, and can be accepted by the school, the students in understanding after will inevitably influx and accomplish their tasks with it - because it is so simple and effective. Everyone can use their free time giving love and instant record. At the same time, a formal certificate can also inspire us, to stick to this activity. It do not need too complicated, is just a certificate page, with data statistics and an authorized certification.

However, this may need the BOINC and other project groups assist - to provide a certificate of public welfare activities. I will do my best to put the public recommended to my friends.

Pressed for time, I haven't written an English version, please forgive mistakes in machine translation. I will correct it soon.

For many projects there is an option (on the project website) for a user to print a certificate showing credit and length of service. Some projects may also show number of tasks completed.

I check each website these days, they do have a page with statistics. But all of these pages are no formal enough and cannot prove that I do have done it, even the existence of the website is doubtful. I can just use PS or WORD to make something like this speedy too.
It's hard to use this pages without "formal authorization" to prove…(SIGH)

For SETI on the "account" page there is "certificate" line, with three options "Account", "Team", "Cross Project". The most formal looking of these is "Account" Certificate, which give the joining date, work done in terms of credits gained, and is signed by David Anderson (SETI Project Director). However this may only be accessible to the individual member.

Another idea is to set up a team for each class or each school, then you would be able to see each team members contribution.

For example

https://einsteinathome.org/community/stats/teams

You can drill into each team and see membership contribution

Statistic sites are described here and they can show different data.

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/links.php#stats

You need to be aware different projects assign values to credit differently, so comparing different projects is similar to comparing currencies.

Good luck.

without any idea of what the conversion rate is.

Project granted credit comparison should get you started. But note:

If a value in Row A and Column B is greater than 1, that indicates that project A is awarding more credit per cpu second than project B.
- so no allowance is made for either project supporting GPUs.
