Welcome to Transferology Lab! The Transferology User Guide for TES Evaluators is written specifically for those users working with TES evaluation, whose functions include creating and sending evaluation tasks (i.e., unarticulated courses) from the Lab to TES. Using this role, Transferology administrators can determine who has access to the feature and exercise some control over the quantity of TES evaluation requests stemming from Transferology. This user guide is a brief, function-focused document that was written to guide the user through the application, thereby supplementing the Help and overlay features already built into Transferology.
First, a basic overview of the application is presented, followed by key user functions for TES Evaluators in the remainder of this guide.
Before proceeding, some basic, higher-level details about navigation, access, and design of the application can assist you as you work. Click here for the basics!
Upon successful login to Transferology Lab, the School Management page is generated. TES Evaluators will see four options in the menu bar:
These menus contain functionality that is specific to the logged in TES Evaluator, as described in detail below.
The Advising & Recruiting menu contains functionalities that include transfer equivalencies, replacement courses, course bundles, and programs:
Transfer Equivalencies is a robust feature that allows all Lab users to view comprehensive lists of all of the equivalencies that subscribing schools have defined.
To learn more, see the Transfer Equivalencies page.
The Replacement Course page allows users to assist the student who approaches them for guidance in taking a course at another school (over the summer, for example) at their leisure in order to transfer it back to their home school. Therefore, Replacement Course functionality is a sort of reverse lookup: select the course at the distant school to determine where a student can take it to get the credit transferred back.
To learn more, see the Replacement Courses page.
The Course Bundles functionality simulates the student's user experience in Transferology by allowing users to locate schools that accept transfer coursework and run student audits. Users have the capability to create multiple bundles, thereby streamlining their workflow.
To learn more, see the Course Bundles page.
The Programs page allows Lab users to view the program lists for different schools to create What-if audits (where available). Programs may be run for any school with integration connected to its degree audit. Schools can also display a list of programs with descriptions and a link to the school's website for more information.
To learn more about viewing programs, see the Programs page.
All Lab users can view/filter their school's evaluation tasks from the Rule Management menu option for TES Evaluations. The table provides a listing of all requests submitted for TES evaluation, in addition to filter and sort capabilities that the user can apply to the table to customize the display.
To learn more, see the TES Evaluations page.
