The Comprehensive Student Records Project: Overview and Updates from UMUC and UCO

In July 2015, twelve institutions aligned with AACRAO and NASPA under a grant funded by the Lumina Foundation to develop various models for comprehensive student records. The main question driving the project was: with technology at hand, how can student records most accurately reflect student learning whether in the classroom or beyond?

University Maryland University College's goal was to develop a competency-based, visual record of performance that can be shared with and understood by employers. The University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) developed an innovative "second transcript" that records students' growth and learning beyond aptitude in their major, aiming to track, document, and verify student learning across five of UCO's Central Six Core Value Tenets. 

Join us on July 26 at 1 PM ET to get an overview, update, and future direction of these projects.
