Random Access: The Latino Experience with Prior Learning Assessment


National efforts to address the degree completion goals of the country cannot succeed without focusing on strategies to improve the educational attainment of Latinos. Latinos are the nation’s second largest racial or ethnic group, and growing. Compared to other racial/ ethnic populations, however, Latinos have lower rates of educational attainment and lower rates of degree completion, on average.


Through analysis of more than 32,000 student academic records, as well as interviews with Latino students and PLA administrators, the study examines how Latino students engage with PLA in terms of methods used, number of credits earned, and areas of study for which credits are earned.
