UNITE-LA launches survey to improve credential transparency

UNITE-LA is conducting a survey of students to better understand how they make decisions about their education. This will be part of a project to make information about available credentials transparent and easily accessible through technology. Working in partnership with Credential Engine, the project aims to build an open-source online registry of all degrees, certificates, certifications, licenses, badges, apprenticeships and other types of educational and occupation-related credentials.

The goal is to provide students, job-seekers, employers and other key stakeholders with the data to make informed decisions about investing in education and training as well as hiring. The survey takes 10-15 minutes and all answers are completely anonymous. We accept answers from high school, community college, career tech training and four-year students. As a token of our appreciation, those who complete the entire survey may enter a raffle to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Please disseminate this survey opportunity widely to your students. Responses will be accepted through Monday, August 17, 2020.
