Americans need clear and reliable information about their educational options. But they also need to know how to navigate these options. Good data on credential quality and transparency helps them select a path that leads to equitable economic and career success. Creating an impact with Credential Quality and Transparency is a state policy toolkit that guides states on how to improve credential quality and transparency. It illustrates how states can use the quality non-degree credential framework (outlined by National Skills Coalition) and the linked open data network, common description language, and publishing platform created by Credential Engine to better map and understand non-degree credentials.
