Meaningful Credentials: What are Students Earning Upon Graduation?
In higher education, credentials are awarded to demonstrate that individuals have achieved the completion a program of studies or mastery of a set of competencies. Currently, there is no standard approach to offering meaningful credentials to students who are attending college through a program for students with intellectual disability (ID). In this session, we present data on the extent to which colleges and universities are offering credentials to students with ID and the types available. We share a Credential Action Planning Tool that can be used to develop meaningful credentials for students with ID.
