Students building out their ePortfolio have an opportunity to showcase their evaluated skills through our ePortoflio credential structure. In addition to collecting and connecting experiences in which they have participated, students are also able to present evidence of developed skills which have been evaluated by supervisors. These four credentials represent skills employers have indicated as essential for graduates to succeed in the workforce. Students earn these credentials by achieving target scores in evaluated Career Connect experiences.
Earning a Microcredential
UNT faculty and staff members can assess one or more of the four Career Connect skills using rubrics developed by Career Connect (see rubrics). As students complete the activity, the work they submit is rated on one or more of the four skills by the faculty. If it receives a rating of 3 or higher, the assignment is badged thus providing a micocredential in the skill rated.
Career Connect will work with faculty and staff to identify and collect appropriate evidence which will be used to complete the rubric and ultimately assess the targeted skill(s). Training on how to utilize and integrate the rubric into the course will also be provided. If you are interested in partnering with Career Connect contact Meena Naik.
