Chapter Abstract

Chapter 11: Comprehensive Learner Record as a Vehicle for Assessment and Learning Transparency in a Skills Economy

by Sherri Braxton, Suzanne Carbonaro, Natasha Jankowski

This chapter outlines assessment technology that supports the development of Comprehensive Learner Record, or CLR, which is “the new generation of secure and verifiable learning records which includes the context of learning achievements within courses, competencies and skills, and employer-based learning achievements” (Wolf & Carbonaro, 2021, p. 1). Here the authors present the theoretical landscape upon which current credentialing innovation builds, explore advancements through a case study of practice between University Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) and the Greater Washington Partnership (GWP), and culminate with an overview of the assessment technology that ultimately facilitates recognition, validation, and portability of learning in the form of a Comprehensive Learner Record.
