The Perspective of an Allied Health Faculty Toward Academic Credit for Experiential Learning.
A study examined the perspective of an allied health faculty toward academic credit for experiential learning through equivalency testing and third-party validation. A four-item questionnaire, completed by 134 of the 268-member full-time faculty of the Hahnemann College of Allied Health Professions in Philadelphia, indicated that the faculty is amenable to granting credit for experiential learning with appropriate evaluation assessments. There was strong support for awarding credit through equivalency testing both in professional courses and in specific subject courses. Also indicated by the questionnaire was the fact that a majority of the faculty do not consider third-party evaluation an appropriate method of assessment for non-academic learning.
