Originally written by Urban Whitaker in 1989, this book provides a contemporary look at the 10 standards for quality assurance in prior learning assessment established by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning in the United States. It also outlines steps and principles for assesing work-based learning and non-credit-based learning, and discusses a number of misconceptions, poor practices and issues that arise when establishing a PLA system.
