CLASP writes a blog on "What’s a “stackable” credential? Are they truly valuable? Is it worth the effort for community colleges to develop them?" 

CLASP strongly supports career pathways that help low-income and lower-educated workers get well-paying jobs that are in demand. Many career pathways use shorter-term credentials that can be earned all at once or more slowly over time. These credentials “stack,” building toward a longer-term credential like an associate’s degree.
