National Transcript Center aims to deliver commercial transcript transmission solution

Ok. I guess preventing fraud in transcripts is important. That wouldn't quite be might my first priority. The nirvana I seek is the ability to use transcript data within a district to look at students and their opportunity to learn. It's tough to understand differential outcomes of kids if all you know is their characteristics and maybe the teachers they had. We all know that scope and sequence matters when designing curriculum. It follows that we need to know this stuff to figure out if curricula, PD efforts, new approaches to educational guidance, etc. are working or not. That should be what is driving automation of transcripts.
