Taking Account: A Report on the Number of PLAR Assessments Conducted by Public Post-secondary Institutions in Canada (2009)

The data that were gathered in an international 2007 study led by OECD on the recognition of non-formal and informal learning suggested that the PLAR activity level in Canadian post-secondary institutions might be higher than previously thought, and that Canada’s performance may compare favourably with the efforts of other countries, particularly in terms of the number of assessments conducted.

As there was, at that time, no single source of information available on the number of assessments conducted by Canada’s public post-secondary institutions, the Canadian Institute for Recognizing Learning (CIRL) approached the Adult Learning Knowledge Centre with a proposal to investigate possible sources of reliable data. This report represents the results of that investigation.
