TES Mode

TES Mode

The purpose of TES Mode is to help users target the courses from other institutions for which students most want transfer answers. Users with the TES evaluations role assigned to their account may enter TES Mode to create evaluation tasks from courses appearing in four areas of the Transferology Lab:

 

  1. Course Bundles
  2. Recruit Students
     
  3. Advise Students
     
  4. Unknown Equivalencies

 
  • Note that TES Mode is only available in Unknown Equivalencies to those users assigned the role of School Administrator or Transfer Specialist AND TES Evaluator

 

When viewing matches in the Course Bundles, TES Mode tab is available for those courses listed on the Maybe tab (i.e., courses that have not yet been reviewed by this school and therefore may not transfer), if applicable.

Remember: the institution the Lab user is logged in from must have an active subscription for TES in order to utilize this function.

 

The example below will explore TES Mode when searching for matches on a course bundle. Clicking the % Match button for the school directs you to the school's page listing the tab for Matches, Maybes, and/or Misses:

 

 

 

The TES Mode tab is available only when the following two conditions are met:

  • A Maybe tab is present
  • The school you are logged in from is a subscribing TES school

When both conditions are met, a TES Mode tab will appear on the right side of the page adjacent to the School Profile:

 

 

Assign These Requests To

New in 1.6.2, the Lab user can specify who to assign TES evaluation requests to, other than the default assignee (if desired).

 

 

The ability to assign requests to a specific user is controlled on the General Information tab.

 

Add Courses to the TES Mode tab

On the right side of the screen, click on the TES Mode tab; the Maybe tab on the left will automatically toggle to the top when this action is performed.

The TES Mode tab is the area where "Maybe" courses from the left side of the screen may be added to and sent to TES for evaluation. As you know, the Maybe tab provides a list of courses that have not yet been reviewed by this school and may not transfer. Select any courses from this list that you want to send out to the TES evaluation workflow.

Adjacent to the course of interest at each school on the left, click on the plus button(s) () to add the course(s) to your queue on the TES Mode tab on the right. 

Only courses that exist in TES can be part of an evaluation task; they are marked with the plus button.

 

 

When a course is sent out through the integration, this is called an evaluation task in TES.

 

Those courses marked as (Requested) have already been sent out for review. Click directly on the (Requested) notation to be directed to the TES Evaluations page:

 

Delete Courses

To delete a course added to the TES Mode tab, simply click the trash can button () adjacent to the desired course. The course will be removed from the list.

Link Courses

Users may link together two or more courses from the same institution, which will result in them being evaluated together in TES.

When multiple courses are added to TES Mode, those courses taken at the same school display the ability to be selected and linked together via the Link button (). 

 

Remember: the TES Evaluation may send a maximum of 10 evaluation tasks per Send to TES click.

 

Courses linked together count as a single evaluation task.

 

Click in the selection box to select the courses to be linked, and then click the Link button; the linked courses will now display on the same line on the TES Mode tab:

 

 

Note that the Link button disappears once the courses are linked together.

Unlink Courses

To unlink courses, click the Unlink button () next to the course that needs removed from the grouping. This unlinked course is dissociated from the linked group and drops back down to the bottom of the course list:

 

 

Send to TES

After adding courses to the TES Mode tab, click the blue Send to TES button () to send the selected courses out to TES for evaluation. Send to TES actually creates the evaluation task in TES, but the progress of evaluation requests are viewable in both the Transferology Lab and in TES to all Lab users.

Successful Request
