Was hoping someone might be able to provide links for some stats.

specifically; statistic that denotes the difference between the number of
people who claim to have received an academic qualification in any given
year vs. the number of students who successfully attained an outcome in
that same year across the academic sector.

I think it might help demonstrate some of the underlying issues that may
cause difficulties in successfully making these technologies available.
some people may not be so keen on supporting credentials, as this statistic
would demonstrate a potential impact on the capacity for people to maintain
employment / feed families, due to new information that may be less
fortunately made available to employers...

I imagine given the way institutional systems are deployed it would happen
on a wholesale basis, should it be taken-up.

(not that I'm suggesting only people with qualifications are capable of
effectively furfiling a particular task; obviously, some industries it's
more important than others, et.al.)

Tim.
