Adding Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes

A learning outcome is a skill or required knowledge that a credential-holder picked up through your course or had to demonstrate to earn their credential. These might be things like "JavaScript," "Cost-Benefit Analysis," or any other skills that are recognizable and important for your credentials.

These learning outcomes are displayed on credentials below the "Skills / Knowledge" heading:

This is optional information that helps give contextual information about your credentials but is much more helpful if you are using the employment directory: third parties viewing your directory will be able to search through your credential-holders based on these skills.

Adding Learning Outcomes to a Group

If you have activated the employment directory, you'll see a notice on your Employment Directory settings to ensure that your Credential Groups have Learning Outcomes so that your directory will be searchable.

For each of your credential groups:

1) Find the Learning Outcomes in each Group's settings.

2) For as many Learning Outcomes (things like skills or pieces of knowledge gained needed to earn the credential), enter the name into the bar and hit "+" to add them one at a time.

Remember to do this for each group so that all of your credentials will be searchable by skill in your directory!
