Comprehensive Student Records

Learning happens everywhere. The comprehensive student record project supported the innovative work of institutions crafting new approaches to document, reflect and verify the diverse experiences of today’s student population. In a convening on November 28-29, 2016, we will gather to exhibit and detail the extraordinary efforts of the participants, creating an engaging opportunity to explore lessons learned so far, and furthering the mission to improve student records.

This work is funded by a $1.27 million grant from Lumina Foundation and was a joint project between NASPA and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO). The goal of the comprehensive student record is to collect, document, and distribute student learning outcomes and competencies that not only include learning from academic courses, but also includes a broad range of student experiences, including co-curricular activities and other educational experiences. This work will also allow institutions to develop approaches that better serve diverse students who acquire learning from multiple sources.

While at the 2016 NASPA Annual Conference, don't miss a presentation from NASPA, "Documenting and Assessing Co-Curricular Learning: A National Perspective."
