Find an assigned micro-credential

Micro-credentials that have been assigned to you appear first in the queue. You may use any of the filter, search or sort options to find a micro-credential.

Assessors who review licensed or private micro-credentials as part of a Premium organization's offerings can see the applicant's name in the queue. All other assessors see an anonymized view, where the applicant's name is hidden. To view the Submission ID, hover on a micro-credential title.


Open an assigned micro-credential

  1. Find the assigned micro-credential (your icon or picture displays in the Assigned to column).
  2. Click Review to open the micro‑credential application.


The micro-credential initially opens to the Assessment tab, where you can make a recommendation; leave private comments; upload your scoring rubric; and pass your submission to the Grantor. Click on the Criteria and Files tabs to access the submission requirements and uploaded evidence.
