MULTIPLE WINS IN K-12
As a K-12 school, you may face a number of challenges – but you don’t have to do it alone. Credentialate meets many needs specific to the K-12 market, such as saving teacher time preparing learner reports, providing a dynamic 24/7 dashboard that increases transparency and visibility of learner progress and much more – all delivered at scale.
Benefits to K-12 schools
Teachers save reporting time with a dynamic 24/7 dashboard. They mark once and the results are instantly available to all stakeholdersa
Parents/carers gain dynamic insight into their learner’s performance
Learners can view strengths and areas for development throughout the teaching period, and track their progress
How we do it
Automate reporting to learners and parents
Mark once and share key outcome results in real time with all stakeholders. This saves the need to mark in the learning management system (LMS), then share those results with the learner information system (SIS), then prepare a report for the parents (which is usually based on a generic template) before being able to engage in performance-based discussions with learners and their parents.
24/7 Learner Dashboard
Learners, parents, teachers and school administrators all have access and full visibility of each learner’s progress. Gone are the days of old school report cards – why wait till the end of term to learn how learners are progressing? Learners are motivated by peer gamification and are keen to progress to the next level. Parents don’t have to call the school or teacher asking for insights on learner performance.
Recognise progression towards mastery
Learner progression against different outcomes is traditionally reported after each teaching period, year, and multi-year stage. But in between these milestones, learners can show where they are at any given point along the way through a provisional badge. This gives learners credentials before they finish school that they can use to find work or other settings, and motivation to improve.
Give personalised teacher feedback
With Credentialate, teachers can intervene and provide feedback at an individual learner level, automatically, and based on marking the learner once, not multiple times in different systems.
Whole of learner recognition
Credentialate grows as your programs do
Credentialate is the platform that expands with your needs. Schools can step through 3 key stages:
- Start simply by issuing digital badges
- Issue personalised learner evidence attached to the badges
- Provide a learner portal with dynamic updates to learner and parents
Provisional Personal Evidence Record
Learning is a journey, and learners deserve to see where they are on that journey. Provisional Evidence Records provide each learner with shareable evidence that updates as their studies continue. Once the learner completes a stage of their learning, they will be awarded a finalised digital credential that shows their final achievements:
Example use case
See how the Hunter School of Performing Arts (HSPA) has used the Learner Dashboard to support their mastery learning and give their learning community unparalleled insight into learning progression in Curriculum (syllabus outcomes), Cross Curriculum (soft skills such as collaboration and critical thinking), Co-curriculum, and Commitment to School Values.
