Micro-credentials specify and certify the outcomes of short-term learning experiences. We’re able to accurately assess our students’ progress and provide timely, actionable feedback to learners and their families.
Then, we can use that feedback to personalise lessons and provide attainable ways for students to work toward specific goals.
