AACRAO recently initiated a series of surveys designed to capture member institutional practice snapshots in 60 seconds or less. These surveys are very brief and distributed to all AACRAO members via email. The December 2014 the AACRAO 60 Second Survey asked respondents to indicate their institutions’ credit for prior learning practices (CPL). This survey was intended to capture the CPL practices most often associated with mature learners and as such, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate credit were excluded from the survey question set intentionally because they represent pre-college credit typically earned by high school students.
