Final Thoughts
• Databases cover multiple levels of education
• Databases can include just names of degrees or full
electronic versions of results
• Databases increase profile of graduates
• Schools also create this type of resource
• New databases are becoming available all the time
Can you think of any other examples of government-run
credential authentication databases that I did not
mention?
Any other questions?
Thank you!
