The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) are joining forces on a new study that builds on a decade of ground-breaking research on prior learning assessment (PLA). This will provide the adult learning and postsecondary fields with up-to-date findings on the experiences and outcomes of students who earn credit through PLA.  

They are seeking institutions that have offered at least two methods of PLA since 2011 and that systematically track PLA credit earning. 

Grants from Lumina Foundation for Education and Strada Education Network are making this study possible and allowing CAEL and WICHE to offer up to 70 postsecondary institutions stipends of $2500 each for their participation and contribution to this study.
