Informal Assessment Tool

Newest Member of the Degreed Partnership Program

San Francisco, CA (USA), March 2017 - Degreed, a fast-growing company that has created an engaging and intuitive way to empower and recognize all forms of professional and lifelong learning, has announced details of its partnership with CredSpark, a company that brings the power of formative assessment to corporate training.

"CredSpark is assessing informal learning for a growing list of corporations including IBM, publishers such as Atlantic Media, and learning providers such as Degreed," said Lev Kaye, founder and CEO of CredSpark. "We're thrilled to have such a forward-thinking professional-learning company as Degreed adopt CredSpark as their embedded assessment provider. Starting next month, Degreed's clients will be able to author and publish assessments from within the Degreed portal using CredSpark's software."

With the rise in informal learning opportunities, comes the increasing need for a mechanism to assess how well learners are retaining their newfound knowledge. The partnership between Degreed and CredSpark provides an informal assessment tool that can help reinforce and crystalize individuals' informal learning efforts. Enterprise customers can also use the integrated solution to create knowledge checks to determine the effectiveness of their learning content.

"Today's workers are learning every day in a variety of ways, on and offline. In fact, more than seventy percent of workers we've surveyed say they learned something useful for their job from an article, a video, or a book in the last 24 hours," said David Blake, CEO and co-founder of Degreed. "Strategic alliances with partners like CredSpark enable us to continue to introduce innovative learning-technology solutions that inspire lifelong learning and result in the transformation of organizations' learning-and-development programs."

Since its founding in 2012, Degreed has enabled individuals and organizations to find, track, and recognize all their learning. Developed with the understanding that there is no single path to expertise, the Degreed platform enables users to set personal learning goals and expand their skill sets in their areas of interest. It also enables businesses to create learning objectives and pathways for their teams, while building a culture of consistent and continuous learning.
