Revolutionizing Academic Records: A Student Perspective
Parish, Jesse; Parks, Rodney; Fryer, Jack
College and University, v92 n4 p24-36 Nov 2017
This study discusses innovations in digital credentialing, namely the Elon Visual EXP, and the broader implications of documenting student experiences in co-curricular, high-impact practices. Following a similar survey of employer observations of the new transcript, a survey was sent to all undergraduates of Elon University to assess their overall perceptions of the new credential. Results indicate a level of satisfaction similar to that of employers, but also highlights the need for future development. The study builds on the importance of mindfulness of the populations that use the transcript and highlights the importance of understanding campus culture as a precursor to expanding the traditional academic record.
