The Educational Passport.
Summerskill, John
The Educational Passport is a service that is being developed at the Educational Testing Service for students or other individuals in order to facilitate their entry to school or college or employment. The Passport is an accumulative record that the individual prepares and owns and uses. At the Educational Testing Service, photographed documents supplied by the individual, and by institutions at the individual's request, and a wallet-sized piece of microfiche containing all the documents is produced. The individual receives his records along with the Passport, and ETS forwards copies of the Passport to institutions the individual designates. Once a passport has been prepared, the individual does not need to gather all his records together each time he wishes to present his credentials. Consequently, much work is eliminated for all concerned. Passports can be brought up to date easily whenever the individual so requests. (Author/KE)
