Using the Public View
This article will provide you with an overview of how using the TES Public View can help you communicate transfer information to the public. We will discuss:
- How your institution can benefit from using the Public View.
- How the Public View works.
- How to navigate the Public View to find transfer equivalencies, and transfer guides.
If you want to know more about how to get started using the Public View, see Public View Management and Customization.
Why Use the TES Public View?
The TES Public View allows you to share transfer evaluation decisions, articulation agreements, and transfer guides with the public. This can help you better reach:
- prospective students and their families.
- transfer counselors at your partner institutions.
- high school guidance counselors at institutions that offer dual enrollment credit.
- staff on your campus who you would rather not grant access to TES.
- students on your campus who are interested in taking summer classes at other institutions.
How Does the Public View Work?
TES Administrators are given a URL that can be shared or embedded behind a text or graphic on the institution's website. When people access this link, they will be taken to your Public View. Once there, they will see:
- your institution name.
- any customize messaging you decide to add ("Read Me" text).
- any Transfer Resource links you provide.
- a listing of institutions that you have defined equivalencies for, displayed in alphabetical order.
- if you have created publicly available Groups and/or Group Reports, these will be located on the right side under GUIDES.
Navigating the Public View
Visitors to your Public View can find transfer information by searching for an institution via the INSTITUTION SEARCH, using the A-Z INDEX search, or scrolling through the list of institutions.
Clicking on an institution's name will take you to their Equivalency List:
Search for Equivalencies
If users are looking to see how specific courses transfer to your institution, they can click on the Search button to be taken into the EQUIVALENCY SEARCH box:
Here, they have the option to search for equivalencies by EQ Status: Active, In-Active, or Both (from any time period).
- Whether an equivalency is active or inactive is determined by its start and end date. Active equivalencies are those whose start date has already occurred, but whose end date has not passed. In-Active equivalencies have either a start date that has not begun or an end date that has passed.
They can also search by Course Code - either Transfer Course, Equivalent Course, or Both.
- Equivalent Course is the course code at your institution.
- If a visitor wanted to see how an Alabama A&M University course would fulfill your institution's Writing requirement, they would enter the course code for that requirement.
Users can adjust the number of equivalencies that display ( Records Per Page) and Sort List By Transfer Course, Equivalent Course, Begin Date, and End Date.
Add/View My List
Users have the option to create a temporary list of equivalencies, which they can then email themselves or export. To make this list, they would:
- Click on the checkbox next to the course they want to add.
- Click +Add/View My List
- Once MyList pops up, they can email (left icon) or export the list (middle icon).
- Want to remove a course from the list? Click the recycling bin.
"My List" will be retained as long as any tab in the browser is kept open. Closing the "My List" pop-up does not delete the list, but once you close the browser it will no longer be available.
Clicking on GUIDES besides an institution name will let visitors see all the Group Reports you have established for that institution.
To view a guide, click on its name:
Visitors have the option to print (left icon) or email (right icon) themselves a copy of the guides:
