Granting Credit for Work Experience: A Guide to Policies and Procedures of Wisconsin Education Institutions.
Wisconsin Univ., Green Bay.
The ways that Wisconsin colleges, technical institutes and high schools award credit for learning acquired through work experience are described. This guide was written after a statewide study of the policies and procedures of both postsecondary and secondary schools. Data were gathered in interviews with nearly every postsecondary school in Wisconsin and a sample of 106 Wisconsin high schools. The information presented is general since policies and procedures of many institutions are summarized into an overall state picture. In each chapter a distinct element of granting credit for work experience is described. Chapter one focuses on the general approaches to granting credit. Chapter two describes the practices of secondary schools in granting credit. Chapter three covers the procedures postsecondary schools use in granting credit for school-sponsored work experiences, as well as the practice of some postsecondary schools of granting credit for a student's past work experience. Finally, Chapter four contains a catalog of postsecondary institutions which award credit for prior learning. This guide will be useful to several groups of people such as job counselors, CETA work supervisors; policymakers; program operators; program directors who design CETA work experience programs; and, state and national groups.
