The intent of micro-credentials is to demonstrate competency in an authentic educational setting (traditional face-to-face and/or remote instruction). Depending on the micro-credential, implementation is to take place with students, mentees, peers, and administrators. Although implementation with partners, family members, and your own children is a great way to practice, to earn a micro-credential, educators need to demonstrate competency through implementation with fellow educators and/or students. In addition, if student work (written or verbal) is needed to earn a micro-credential, then that work must be original to the student and not created by someone else on behalf of the student.
Assessors will assess submissions as Not Earned if it is determined that an educator's implementation is not authentic.
