Equivalency Explorer: Course Code Match

This report is used mainly by those states that have common course numbering.

It lists potential equivalencies involving courses between your institution and another institution by comparing catalogs (datasets) and listing all of the courses with exact matching course codes (E.g. ACC 101 = ACC 101). You can look at these courses and either create equivalencies directly, or send them as evaluation tasks to your evaluators.

  • Select the institution using the arrow button to the left of the row.

  • Select a Data Set for the transfer institution:

  • Select a Data Set for your institution:

  • Click the SELECT button.

  • A list of all of the courses with matching Course Codes displays. The only thing that is being evaluated is the Course Codes; neither credits, titles, nor descriptions are considered. They could be drastically different, which is why this tool is intended to be used between schools or systems that use common course numbering. Schools that don’t are still able to use this tool, just please use it with caution.

  • If you scroll to the bottom of this list, you will see an equivalency Header block.

  • You can select as many of the proposed equivalencies (check the box(es) in the right column), add the Header information, and click the CREATE EQ(S) button to create equivalencies of your own with the other institution’s course as the source course, and your course as the target course.

  • If you would prefer to review/create each equivalency individually, open the (proposed) equivalency using the  button.

  • You can create Evaluation Tasks through the Evaluation Tracker Workflow using the  icon.
