    Why Skills & Achievements?

    The Skills & Achievements solution helps institutions support students by providing the ability to curate a modern credential, aligned to essential outcomes and skills important to employers and connected to workforce needs.

    Comprehensive, Flexible & Customized

    By centralizing institutional assessment data, institutions can take a comprehensive approach to supporting skills and credentialing. Every student can easily create a customized skills-based transcript, allowing them to demonstrate employability in ways that the typical transcript cannot.

    Focus Areas

    With the ongoing question of whether or not a college degree is worth the time and investment required, coupled with rising tuition costs and other market disruptions, the importance of demonstrating verifiable skills to employers is driving a strong trend towards new microcredential programs and other alternative education pathways. The Skills & Achievements solution provides the infrastructure and tools to make it possible for students to create a skills-based transcript, addressing a range of use cases including:

    Verified Curricular & Co-Curricular Activities

    Can your institution manage and authenticate student learning experiences in one place?

    Badging

    Can students currently earn, display and share badges seamlessly, and integrate them into their skills-based transcripts?

    Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) Support

    Does your institution support modern credentialing via CLR, allowing students to align experiences in and outside of the classroom with outcomes and skills frameworks?

    A CLR is what best represents your students and institution in terms of what is needed to support students so that they may reach their goals. At UMGC, we really want our document to serve students so that they may articulate skills and learning within the classroom and be able to say with confidence, 'this is what I have learned, this is how I learned it, and this is how I can apply it to the job opportunity that I am seeking’.
