Learners can show off their success on the GED test by using digital badges available through Credly.
This digital credential platform issues badges to learners that can be shared online as proof of certification. Badges link to the Credly website, where viewers can see all the details of a learner’s achievement.
Learners who post their badges make it easy and simple for employers to verify their accomplishments and learn more about their competencies. Posting badges also sets learners apart from other students and job-seekers by showcasing their skills.
Learners are eligible for badges based on the GED test subjects they have passed and what scores they earned on their tests. Available badges include one for the GED credential, badges for each test subject, and badges for test subjects passed with College Ready and College Ready + Credit scores. All the badge options are viewable here: credly.com/organizations/ged/badges.
Once learners have earned a badge, they will be notified via email. Learners must then follow the instructions in their email to access their Credly account. From their Credly account, learners can access and share their badges on multiple online platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, and their email signatures.
