Rasmussen College Launches Comprehensive Learner Record, a Digital Skills-Focused Transcript

Higher education leader in innovative learning introduces competency-based transcript to help students identify strengths and share with them employers to aid in career advancement

Minneapolis (May 13, 2020)—Rasmussen College, a regionally accredited private college, today announced the launch of its new Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR). The revolutionary digital, competency-based transcript will enable students and alumni to easily track both transferrable “soft” skills and programmatic academic outcomes—both of which apply directly to high-demand careers, providing for a seamless transition from the classroom to the workforce.

Rasmussen College’s CLR is the next generation of skills communication for students and alumni. It supplements the traditional college transcript and provides an opportunity to more clearly share strengths and competencies in the workforce-relevant skills employers need. The reports are digital, skills-focused, shareable and accessible 24/7 for students or alumni to easily share their strengths and skills with employers.

“The Rasmussen College Comprehensive Learning Record is built for a 21st-century career environment where skills are the new currency,” said Brooks Doherty, assistant vice president of Academic Innovation at Rasmussen College. “It helps demonstrate a student’s proficiency in transferable skills that are extremely valued in today’s workforce. We believe all Rasmussen graduates must develop these skills to excel and grow not only academically but in their careers.”

Several national organizations, including the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation and its T3 Innovation Network, are working with institutions like Rasmussen College to innovate how learners’ skills are communicated to employers.

“Rasmussen College’s CLR is an early and critical contribution to an important national movement,” said Jason Tyszko, vice president, Center for Education and Workforce, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “Since competencies are the new currency, we need data and language that are skills-based, digital and shared between employers and higher education. Rasmussen College’s Comprehensive Learner Record fulfills that need at a high level.”

The CLR report identifies individual proficiency levels across six program-specific skill areas as well as six transferable skills essential in well-rounded employees and informed citizens. The transferrable skills include: communication, critical thinking, digital fluency, diversity and teamwork, ethics and professional responsibility, and information literacy. The Rasmussen College CLR will be implemented in phases prior to launching across all degree programs. The reports initially will be incorporated into two Competency-Based Education (CBE) graduate programs at Rasmussen College: Master of Human Resources Management (MHRM) and Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA).

Rasmussen College created the CLR using internal resources, existing technology and the preexisting alignment of student learning outcomes, course competencies, course assessments and employers’ expectations. The CLR will be useful in helping learners understand their strengths and communicate them accurately to employers, with easy-to-understand assessment evidence.
