Implementing Prior Learning Assessment Services in Higher Education

Wednesday, July 18, 2018, 3:00 - 4:00 PM EDT

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) services acknowledge that individuals gain college-level learning related to a field or discipline before arriving at a post-secondary institution. By enhancing and expanding these types of services, institutions can create procedures for evaluating prior knowledge to award course credit and effectively help students persist and complete their degree. A PLA project is underway at West Hills Community College District where the intention is to deliberately use existing PLA methods to serve students such as Credit by Examination and expand the methods to include Portfolio Assessment. To help institutions pursuing similar undertakings, this presentation will share the phases of implementation and the lessons learned along the way.

Presenter: Justin Garcia, Prior Learning Assessment Coordinator, West Hills Community College District (WHCCD)
