EARN COLLEGE CREDIT
FOR WHAT YOU KNOW
by Janet Colvin
2006/ISBN: 0-7575-2750-7/Price: $24.95
“Thousands of adult learners have successfully used a variety of
assessment methods to earn college credit for what they know.”
—Janet Colvin, author
Earn College Credit for What You Know, Fourth Edition
Earn College Credit for What You Know is written to help adult students prepare to
earn college credit for their lifelong learning through the Prior Learning Assessment
(PLA) process. Colleges and universities use the terms Prior Learning Assessment
(PLA) or the Assessment of Prior Learning (APL) to describe the process of earning
college credit from learning acquired through work, training, volunteer experiences,
and personal life. PLA helps students determine what they already know and what
they still need to learn through classes; it recognizes that adults bring their personal
and professional experiences to the classroom and that learning is a lifelong activity.
This book, a publication of The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL),
www.cael.org, provides stories about adults who have returned to college and used
their rich learning experiences to earn college credits toward their degrees.
