Personal Learning Plan.
American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.; Rhode Island Coll., Providence.
The Personal Learning Plan project described in this report was developed as a way to supplement the advising system at Rhode Island College by giving students a written document of their academic progress throughout their college careers. The overall purpose is to improve retention by advising students on the best way for them to be successful in college and to achieve their goals for their college career. The Personal Learning Plan is 30 pages in length, with an additional 20 pages of appendices that feature time management charts, college-wide activities, and various college policy statements that are important for students. At the present time, nearly all freshmen receive a plan. The goal is to produce the original plan for all freshmen and then have it updated each year. The program has been modified in response to an external evaluation by assessment experts, and a larger external evaluation is scheduled. (KM)
