Microcredentials Benefit Everyone

The difference is in the evidence

 
The Individual

Learners and teachers submit and review evidence of learning to earn stackable credentials leading to degrees or promotions. Earners are allowed flexible completion to transition away from the seat time metric to real mastery.

 
 
The Organization

Leaders set clear expectations on how to get hired and promoted with consistent, evidence-based training. Job-embedded evidence of mastery results in timely, accurate, and actionable data that allows real evaluation of programs.

The Community

All stakeholders partner to create and evaluate credentials. K12, Higher Education, and Workforce compare the same data and systems that measure and value ALL learning in the community and provide multiple paths to opportunity.

 
 

What are Microcredentials?


Microcredentials are a digital form of certification indicating demonstrated mastery of a specific skill. To earn microcredentials, learners identify competencies they believe they have mastered and complete evidence-based requirements to verify they have done so.

Microcredentialing is different than “badging” as it is more rigorous and represents mastery demonstrated on the job. Feedback and revisions show progress towards goals and provide the needed time for mastery to move schools and industry away from a seat time metric. You can export a MIDAS microcredential to any third party in a machine readable format using Badge 2.0 Standards.

We’ve always had to just cross our fingers and hope that teachers are able to go back and enact [professional learning] in their practice. The key difference with microcredentials is that they are earned–not based on seat-time–but by submitting evidence demonstrating that an educator uses that skill successfully and consistently in his or her practice for the benefit of students.
