What is a CLR?

Recorded Webinar: A Comprehensive Learner Record For All: How The University of North Texas Recognizes and Rewards Marketable Skills with Open Badges. Concentric Sky (makers of Badgr) and the University of North Texas have collaborated to produce a first-of-its-kind comprehensive learner record.

As students progress through experiences at UNT, they are building evidence that accumulates over time and, when assessed, will allow UNT to issue marketable skills credentials/transcripts. Currently, these competencies are showcased in a variety of ways, with the ultimate goal being the launch of UNT digital skills transcripts - comprehensive learner records.

According to the IMS Global Learning Consortium a CLR should be:

  • Transparent
  • Relevant
  • Equitable
  • Private
  • Secure 
  • Portable
  • Interoperable
  • Shareable 
  • Verifiable

The UNT CLR is designed with these characteristics as the foundation.

  1. Provides visualization of student progress and competency  development
  2. Frames the value of the degree in labor/market terms
  3. Aligns with marketable skills initiatives:
    • 60x30TX requirements
    • Supports efforts to track student employment and earnings outcomes
  4. Curricular AND Co-curricular
