Online education is changing the way we teach and learn. More than 32% of college students took at least one online course in 2012, and increasing numbers of students and institutions are validating learning through competency-based tests.
While this new competency-based approach to higher education holds many possibilities, it can be difficult for institutions to know what technology they need – and to find trusted partners to implement change.
credential.me can help.
credential.me Delivers Competency-based Testing Solutions
Competency-based learning, where students demonstrate their knowledge not with seat-time in a classroom but through psychometrically valid assessments, is gaining traction. credential.me works closely with its partner colleges and universities to design and deploy ACE-approved, competency-based tests.
credential.me’s proprietary and partner-developed tests can help colleges and university clients accelerate their deployment of competency-based models while simultaneously decreasing cost.
credential.me Creates Custom Solutions Based On Needs
credential.me works closely with its partner institutions to create custom testing solutions based on needs. credential.me can take an existing exam, analyze the items and improve it to ensure it’s psychometrically valid. Or we can work with you and our subject matter experts to generate original tests that are tailored to your institution’s unique objectives. credential.me can also manage the validation and ACE-approval process for you.
Digital Credentials – Tomorrow’s Diploma
credential.me is also working with pioneer colleges and universities to design and deploy digital credentials – badges today, transcripts and diplomas in the future – helping institutions put their digital credentials online a secure, personalized manner.
Digital credentials can be shared anywhere – on LinkedIn, Facebook, an electronic resume – providing students and institutions with great brand visibility. Better yet, a digital badge contains embedded data, so a graduate’s credentials can be validated with one click, safeguarding you against the fraudulent use of your brand. And all personal information is protected by credential.me’s secure hosting.
