This brief is authored by Alexa Wesley and Amelia Parnell of NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and is one in a series of briefs that will be released as part of WICHE’s Recognition of Learning initiative made possible by generous funding from Lumina Foundation and Strada Education Network.

To examine the conditions around advising students about Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) and the current state of the field, NASPA conducted a research study involving video and phone interviews with practitioners in advising-related roles at institutions and a national survey of student affairs professionals. This brief shares findings and recommendations from this research.
