Six Major State Policy Associations Join in Commitment to Credential Transparency

The Data Quality Campaign (DQC), Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), Education Commission of the States (ECS), National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), National Governors Association (NGA), and State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO) have joined Credential Engine to create the first State Policy Partnership focused on expanding credential transparency.

“Education and economic challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic underscore the importance of ensuring that students and their families have information on the pathways available and potential outcomes of pursuing those credentials. Without transparency about the opportunities available to them and easy-to-find, actionable information about the skills needed for success in the workforce, students and families are left to make these life-altering decisions in the dark,” said Jennifer Bell-Ellwanger, president and CEO of the Data Quality Campaign. “Importantly, this partnership will advance and expand the amount of information available to families following the crisis and throughout recovery.”
