PLAR Spotlight

Prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR) is the evaluation and recognition of non-formal, informal and/or experiential learning (as well as formal learning not considered for credit transfer) that can result in workplace recognition, as well as academic credits and/or credentials.

A PLAR process may include activities such as interviewing, competency assessment, learning outcome assessment and portfolio development. Prior learning assessment and recognition is commonly used to evaluate learning acquired outside the classroom for the purpose of assigning academic credits. Common ways individuals have acquired college-level learning include: corporate or military training; work experience; civic activity; and independent study.
