Comprehensive Learner Records

Learning happens everywhere. The goal of the comprehensive learner record is to showcase student learning from a variety of experiences, including academic courses, co-curricular engagements, and other opportunities. NASPA and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) are partnering to help institutions create digital records that will help students describe the depth and breadth of their learning.

The pilot phase of the project concluded in November 2016 with 12 institutions developing records that included e-portfolios, co-curricular transcripts, and badges (download the report here). Through grant support from Lumina Foundation, the second phase of the project began in December 2017 and will reach several more institutions through regional workshops to show groups of institutions how to create these records.

Applications for participation are now open! Colleges, Universities and Systems interested in being part of the next phase of institutions creating and implementing Comprehensive Learner Records (CLRs) may apply below for participation through March 16, 2018.
