Using TES’s Powerful Evaluation Tracker for establishing Transfer Equivalencies
TES offers you several possible actions when evaluating a Transfer Course
Approve: Use this action when you agree with the included equivalent. • Deny: Use this action when you disagree with the included equivalent. • Need more information: Use this action when you do not have enough information to make a decision. • Re-assign: Use this action to redirect an evaluation to the proper user or group. • Select/change equivalent course: Use this action to search for the proper UNM equivalent when a UNM course is not included or when the wrong UNM was selected as an equivalent.
