2016 Licensure/L.A.R.E. Task Analysis


The Task Analysis, conducted by the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB), is a study of the profession that ensures the content of the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E) remains legally defensible and relevant. 

The Task Analysis results are also used to defend your scope of practice as a landscape architect. 

Your participation:

  • Strengthens the case for licensure and your scope of practice:  The results will demonstrate the knowledge, skills and abilities that landscape architects rely on to protect the public's health, safety and welfare.

  • Ensures all critical aspects of licensed practice are recognized:  As the scope of practice of a landscape architect evolves so should the licensure exam. Your input helps ensure the exam stays defensible and relevant.

  • Ensures that your voice is heard:  Provides you with an opportunity to inform the knowledge, skills and abilities required to protect the public as a licensed landscape architect, and ensures that the voice of your jurisdiction’s landscape architects is represented in the research

  • Requires only 30 minutes of your time to complete the survey but will have a great effect on our profession.

New for this year, the Task Analysis is global! As practice continues to increase globally, CLARB has partnered with the International Federation of Landscape Architects to administer the survey throughout the world for the first time. Data collected beyond North America is for research purposes only and will not impact the L.A.R.E.

The survey will be open from April 4–25. To thank you for your time, CLARB is randomly selecting 10 survey respondents to each win a $250 USD Visa gift card—five winners will be chosen on April 11 and five winners will be chosen when the survey closes. The sooner you complete the survey, the more chances you have to win!
