The Personal Learning Portfolio is a review of the comprehensive learning you have acquired during your work and life experience.
Once you've developed your Personal Learning Portfolio, you'll associate your work and
life learning events and experiences with college and university courses that match your experience. And you'll document that experience with a verifiable resume and narrative of work and life learning.
Ames Christian University learners may apply for Personal Learning Portfolio credit, it is recommended that only learners with significant life experience undertake the exercise.
your life and work experience merits more than 30% of your required credits? We have developed a method to test for subject-matter expertise. You'll either take general subject matter tests, such as CLEP, Dantes,
BrainBench, or another, or you'll have the opportunity to take customized subject-matter tests.
Customized subject-matter tests are subject-specific tests developed by experts in your field. They write the tests, then
evaluate the results. If they say you get credit based on the test, you get credit. It's a very thorough means of proving your knowledge beyond the shadow of a doubt.
Finally, if you think you deserve credit in a
specific area, we have will develop directed study exercises that give you the chance to formally study and document your knowledge in a subject area. Directed study exercises are courses that we put together just for
you, because we want you to get the maximum available credit.
