Comprehensive Learner Record3

In 2015, The Lumina Foundation awarded AACRAO and NASPA: Association of Student Affairs Professionals $1.7 million to pilot a project to develop models for a more comprehensive student record. 

After the success of the pilot, Lumina awarded the two associations a $1.2 million grant in 2017 to continue their work on the development and adoption of a single Comprehensive Learner Records (CLR) in American higher education.

The CLR seek to capture, record, and communicate learning when and where it happens in a student’s higher education experience. This includes learning outcomes from courses, program and degrees, as well as experience they have outside the classroom that help develop their career ready skills and abilities.

The Standardized Components for a Competency-Based Educational Record

September 17, 2019

Free webinar |  | 2-3 PM ET

Alternative educational movements are gaining traction. Competency-based education (CBE) is one of those movements. It has gained significant traction in higher education as a means to clearly identify the learning that is designed to take place within and around an academic program. CBE, in its pure form, does not “fit” into a traditional framework of terms, courses, grades and credits. Technologies and records standards do not exist to accommodate this growing educational practice, although emerging technologies are focusing the learning experiences into new record formats. Even when crosswalks to traditional frameworks are created, the rich evidence of learning is lost.

When designing CBE programs, what information should we be expected to capture, assess, record and report?  What should we commonly expect to be contained in such a record when we receive one from another institution or from a student? The Standardized Components for a Competency-Based Educational Record report and this webinar report presents a framework for the construction of such records and their standard contents.
