High School Transcript Evaluation How many of you have evaluated a high school transcript? How many transcripts have you evaluated ever? How often do you evaluate transcripts for the students you work with? How long does it take to evaluate one transcript? Your whole caseload? If there was a tool that evaluated even the most difficult high school transcript accurately, how would you utilize that tool? How could it make your job easier?
What is TES? The Transcript Evaluation Service (TES) is a statewide initiative of the University of California to improve student achievement in college preparatory courses. TES provides student and school-level reports that document student progress toward meeting UC/CSU entrance requirements for all grade levels. How many schools participate? Since launching in 2004, TES has worked with more than 165 individual CA high schools. As of the academic year, there are 103 CA high schools in TES.
TES Benefits Provides students and parents with personalized information on progress toward meeting UC/CSU requirements in an easily accessible and understandable format. Allows school staff to see at a glance which students are meeting, close to meeting, or not meeting UC/CSU requirements, and then tailor student course taking to increase eligibility. Informs principals and administrators in school reports on areas of action in course offerings, master schedule planning, and accountability reporting.
TES Challenges Limited uploads Typically done once a year Data is only up to date during one semester Upload takes time; especially the first time Inconsistent data Doorways list doesn’t reflect what school offers “Out of District” designations Data bundle issues TES implementation partners are proactive and work with the school and UCOP to ensure the accuracy of the information that was uploaded
The TES Process: Data Submission and Evaluation
UC/CSU Course Requirements
TES School Report: Grade Level Progress Report Percentage of students in each grade taking a-g courses Percentage of students meeting minimum UC and CSU GPA requirements Percentage of students in the grade meeting, close to meeting, or not meeting CSU benchmarks
TES Student Report Student progress toward meeting UC and CSU subject requirements Courses needed and recommended additional courses Student GPA and whether it meets UC and/or CSU requirements
TES Student Report Student progress toward meeting UC and CSU subject requirements in table form A course planner Steps to achieve or maintain UC and CSU eligibility Additional college- going resources
TES Student Transcript Courses students have completed or enrolled in Student grades and credits earned Student status toward meeting UC and CSU course requirements Weighted and unweighted GPA
