The Best Practices: Electronic Transcript and Verification Portals guideline has been prepared by the TAICEP Digital Student Data (DSD) Task Force which was created to: examine DSD practices from the credential evaluator perspective, provide usage guidelines for the credential evaluation community, and advance professional standards. In this Guideline the Task Force has developed brief descriptions of and general best practices for three current models to access or verify documents. Task Force members will continue to review and revise this Guideline as methods for issuing, verifying, and retrieving educational documents electronically and digitally evolve. Ultimately, this document is intended to be used in conjunction with TAICEP’s Digital Document Provider resource.
