Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition is a formal evaluation and accreditation process. Students may obtain credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) for knowledge and skills that they have acquired outside of secondary school. This Prior learning is assessed and evaluated to determine whether the student has met the provincial course expectations. The student may “challenge” a specific course for credit or may obtain credits through the “equivalency” process if they have credentials from schools outside Ontario.
