Designing Competency-based PLA Pathways to Scale Up Completion and Learner Success – Phase II

This is a proof of concept project to build and expand upon 2014 and 2016 IITG projects, which developed templates for seven PLA courses and creates an additional seven competency-based PLA templates. This current project will continue the competency-based approach by: 1) providing students access to the current CBE PLA templates built within the Sāgence™ system, 2) developing a PLA competency-based course so that students can document individualized learning from a competency-based perspective, 3) expanding the CBE PLA options from seven to 18 in Sāgence™, and 4) providing additional professional development to more faculty and professional staff. The goal of this project is to increase access to CBE options for students pursuing credit for individualized prior learning assessment through a portfolio options.
