A Second Cross-Canada Study of Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition
This study presents the views of adult learners about PLAR. The learners fall into two groups: those who participated in PLAR and those who received an orientation to PLAR but did not proceed with assessment. The authors synthesize these perspectives with a review of the research literature and their findings on institutional activities over eight years.
