Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

October 15, 2010 • Written by

Have you taken a course at another institute (or at RRC) that is equivalent to a course you are taking now? Do you have life experience in an area that is equivalent to a course you are taking now? Maybe you should consider RPL.

Why do RPL?

It is not an effective and efficient use of resources if learners are having to relearn what they already know and can do. This also adds time, and sometimes additional costs, to the learner’s program. By providing opportunities for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the college is better able to meet the needs of learners.

What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) at Red River College is achieved through one or more of the following process:

  1. Assessment of Educational Documents for Transfer Credits
  2. Portfolio/evidence assessment (i.e. a document that identifies and verifies prior learning)
  3. Challenge process assessment (written/oral examinations, interviews, projects, assignments, performance/skill demonstration, product assessments).
  4. External course/program assessment

For more information on RPL processes at the College, go to www.rrc.ca/rpl.

1. Assessment of Educational Documents for Transfer Credits


This involves the assessment of formal courses completed through recognized post-secondary institutions which may be equivalent to courses in the student’s program of study at RRC. The student is required to submit

  1. a completed RRC Transfer Credit Request Form (see below for link to form)
  2. original or certified transcripts
  3. detailed course outline(s).

Transfer of credit decisions are made by program faculty.

If you are interested in pursuing a transfer of credit by assessment of educational documents please fill out the following form and submit it to the student services desk at D101 (NDC) or P104 (EDC).

RRC Transfer Credit Request Form: http://www.rrc.ca/files/File/catalogue/CourseCreditTransfer.pdf

2. Portfolio/Evidence Assessment


This involves the assessment of learning documented in a portfolio(s). A portfolio(s) is a detailed document developed by the student which articulates and provides proof of the learning acquired through work and life experience which may be equivalent to the learning outcomes in a college course(s)/program. The portfolio is assessed for course credit(s) by program faculty. Students should contact the RPL Advisor (Lauren Waples, RPL Advisor, Email: lwaples@rrc.ca Telephone: (204) 632-3094) for assistance with the portfolio development process. A Portfolio Development Resource Guide is available for students.

If you are interested in pursuing RPL through the Portfolio and/or Challenge Process Assessments please fill out the following form and submit it to the Administrative Assistant in P414.

3. RPL Challenge Process


These are methods of flexible assessment developed and evaluated by the program faculty to measure an individual’s prior learning as it relates to learning outcomes of specific course(s) in a college program. These methods include:
Challenge Examinations (i.e. oral/written tests, projects, assignments, product assessments, interviews, etc.)
These are assignments, tests, projects, interviews etc. based on the learning outcomes of a specific course, which have been designed by program faculty to assess college-level learning. Students who believe they have prior learning related to a particular course are provided with course information and have access to appropriate texts and other learning materials to prepare for the RPL processes. They are required to demonstrate through the RPL process that they have equivalent learning. If successful in the RPL processes for the course then credit is granted.
Skill Demonstrations (i.e. practical examinations, skill demonstrations, simulations)
Practical examinations, skill demonstrations and simulations involve the actual demonstration of an individual’s prior learning as it relates to the learning outcomes of a course(s)/program. Students who believe they have prior learning related to a particular course are provided with performance checklists and have access to texts and other resources. The specific learning outcomes and performance standards are assessed by program faculty. If successful in the RPL processes for the course then credit is granted.

If you are interested in pursuing RPL through the Portfolio and/or Challenge Process Assessments please fill out the following form and submit it to the Administrative Assistant in P414.

http://rrc.mb.ca/files/File/catalogue/RPLAssessChallenge.pdf

4. External Course/Program Assessment


The College has developed a process for the evaluation of programs/courses offered through industry, business or community groups to determine equivalency to college courses. This process includes specific policies, guidelines and a fee structure for the evaluation of workplace training.

If you are interested in pursuing a transfer of credit by assessment of educational documents please fill out the following form and submit it to the student services desk at D101 (NDC) or P104 (EDC).
