Add/edit/delete Goal: Credential Earned

This article describes the Students>History group, Goals - Credentials Earned. It also shows how to manage credentials displayed for your site.

Background

MnABE tracks ABE students who earn certain state and federal credentials. They have compiled a list of 30+ certificates. 

In SiD, credential tracking is handled on the Students>History screen. When a student earns a credential, staff will create a new Goal MET history row and select the credential name.

NOTE: By default, NONE of the credentials appear for a site. Each ABE program will need to choose the credentials offered by their program - if any - before they appear on the Students>History screen, History Items menu.

  • A SiD admin level login is required to customize the credential list.
  • Credentials can be turned on or off at any time.
  • Users cannot add or remove items from the static MnABE list of credential items.

Add credentials that appear for your site

  1. Log in to SiD with an admin level account. On the Admin tab, click the Site Specific History Items link.
  2. Click the Manage Credentials Earned link to go to the credential edit screen.
