TAICEP Webinar: “If at first you don’t succeed…”
Apr 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Description: Among American universities, admissions decisions consider the grade point average (GPA) as one of the variables that determines a student’s acceptance into a program. Having accurate and uniform calculations of the GPA are essential when establishing best practice policies at institutions and evaluating foreign credentials makes these matters even more nuanced. Given the varying interpretations of grading scales from other systems of education, this webinar focuses on the grade of failure, provides multiple perspectives on how they affect credential evaluation and illustrates inevitable inequalities in institutional and organizational guidelines.
 

Presented by:  Bernard Ramos, Vice President and Senior Evaluator at Educational Perspectives, a not-for-profit credential evaluation organization based in Chicago.  Bernard studied at DePaul University and Sciences-Po Paris and has more than 12 years of international education experience.  He is fully trained on all systems of education and has presented at various conferences and led numerous training workshops on credential evaluation.

AACRAO & UK NARIC Webinar: Updates to Secondary Education in the UK: GCSEs and A-Levels
May 16 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Free webinar

In the United Kingdom, both the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and A-Levels have recently been reformed, and a new grading system has been brought in for GCSEs. Participants will learn about the old and new grading systems, as well as receive background information on the nature of the reforms.

Look at exam boards and how they assess students at each level of education; learn about the ‘Sixth Form,’ A-Level performance and subject choice, and how this relates to university admissions; and examine some of the differences across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales (there isn’t just one UK system).
