Metaphor and Totem: Exploring and Evaluating Prior Experiential Learning.
Starr-Glass, David
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v27 n3 p221-31 Jun 2002
Calls for a richer perspective in assessing prior experiential learning. Asserts that using Levi Strauss' totemism instead of metaphor (looking for similarity between experience and courses) may restore power, ownership, and centrality of the experience to the candidate for assessment, while allowing evaluators to engage in a novel but authentic articulation of the underlying academic equivalency of the experience.
