Background

Recommendations

The initiative’s Phase One work identified seven recommendations to inform the next stages of the work:

  • Develop a learner-centered, nationally recognized credentialing system.
  • Recognize, validate, and credential all learning, as knowledge and skills are acquired throughout a learner’s lifetime.
  • Increase the number and types of incremental credentials available to all learners.
  • Connect and integrate postsecondary and workforce competencies through the different types of incremental credentialing.
  • Provide clear messaging of what someone knows and can do, including transparent assessments.
  • Increase efforts to clearly define quality, which will build trust.
  • Decrease costs.
