In the past month, ExcelinEd and Burning Glass Technologies have released three elements of Credentials Matter, a first-of-its-kind analysis that examines whether the credentials students earn align with real-world employer demand.

  1., the most extensive data collection available on industry-recognized credentials earned in states.
  2. Credentials Matter: Report 1, an in-depth look at the analysis’s approach, findings and recommendations.
  3. Where Credentials Meet the Market, a second report examining state case studies on the effect of high school industry credentials on educational and labor market outcomes.
