Building Incremental Credentials

Purpose

Incremental credentials capture learning as it is acquired, formally recognize that learning, and connect it to a larger context of education and work.

The purpose of incremental credentials is to officially recognize learners for what they know and can do as they acquire their learning, thus ensuring that they obtain formal documentation of that learning.

This Playbook:

  • Provides an overview of incremental credentials
  • Provides key considerations when designing and implementing different credentials
  • Links to case studies that illustrate different incremental credentials
