The C++ Graphics and Gaming Competency Benchmark will measure your ability to install SFML libraries on your local machine, work with windows in SFML, handle events in SFML, and draw graphics objects within SFML windows. You will be evaluated on your skills in working with sprites and textures in SFML, using vertex arrays to define shapes, animating objects using sprite sheets, playing sounds in an app, and developing a complete game in SFML. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills to use the features of SFML and create a complete gaming application.
