Unlocking the [Full] Potential of PLA

Capella University provides a thorough report on prior learning assessments (PLA) beginning with a brief history of the PLA while acknowledging the growing demand for crediting prior learning in light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The report discusses the anatomy of a PLA including definitions of key components as well as specific outcomes for learners. Lastly the report provides strategies to be successful in implementing policies and practices on PLA specifically around common institutional practices and ecosystem changes that must occur to ensure the work moves forward.
