What is TES?

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 2012-2013 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
 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
