The value problem of knowledge is one of the prominent prolems that philosophical accounts of knowledge are expected to solve. According to the credit solution, a well-known solution to this problem, knowledge is more valuable than mere true belief because the former is creditable to a subject's cognitive competence. But what is "credit value"? How does it connect to the already existing distinctions between values? The purpose of the present paper is to answer these questions. Its most important conclusion is that credit value is not-contrary to what the upholders of the credit solution have frequently claimed-final value.
