The GA Credentialing Network

General Assembly is developing a new kind of credential and technology assessment that will help employers source and identify top talent.

Our collaborators (so far):

Hire the Right People

Too often, technology credentials are tied to a rote knowledge of a language and the ability to pass a test.

We are building a way to assess the ability to solve business problems using technology and correlate to success in the 21st century workplace, starting with web development.

These credentials aim to help make the hiring process more efficient by providing a means of evaluating a broad range of talent and ability throughout various stages of their careers.

Our Guiding Principles

Our collaborators are helping us source and develop challenges that are meaningful in their hiring process. Our work with employers has shaped the guiding principles behind this project:

Authenticity


Our challenges simulate the complex, nuanced problems encountered in the real-world.

Relevance


Candidate time is precious, so we assess the skills most relevant to employers.

Differentiation


Quality isn't binary. We grade work on a spectrum, so the best stand out.

These credentials aim to help make the hiring process more efficient by providing a means of evaluating a broad range of talent and ability throughout various stages of their careers.
