State Policy Approaches to Support Prior Learning Assessment

A Resource Guide for State Leaders, 2015 Update

Posted: February 1, 2016
Authors: Amy Sherman, Rebecca Klein-Collins
Organizations: CAEL

A new guide from CAEL serves as a resource for state leaders interested in using prior learning assessment to help more workers complete training and degree programs sooner by giving them college credit for knowledge and competencies they’ve gained outside of the classroom. The booklet includes background information on PLA, examples of policies that other states and systems are adopting, and case studies of both general approaches to state- or systemwide PLA.
