Trailer video

This video illustrates how recognition of previous learning (RPL) may be applied to support and improve the effect of learning processes in an aquaculture class with students from fish farming industry in Miid-Norway:

50 students attended the courses during the school year 2018-2019.
48 decided to try to take the national theoretical exam, which is one out of two exams in the national qualification framework.
48 students passed this exam.
The group of students got a mean score of 3.5, on a scale from 0 to 6 (best).
This is an improvement of 0.3 points compared to the period 2015-2018, where approaximately the same number of students managed to pass the national theoretical exam.
