The EGRACONS project www.egracons.eu
aims to develop an online grade conversion tool to be made available eventually to all higher education institutions in Europe. Fair and transparent rules of the grade conversion of mobility students can improve the quality of the Erasmus students’ experiences and to increase awareness of different grading cultures in Europe with a practical approach towards their interpretation.
The project has entered its final stage and the online grade conversion tool is already functional and available to universities from all over Europe for testing providing the interested institutions send their grading tables according to the template available below. After the grading tables are integrated in the tool universities will be given access to EGRACONS grade conversion tool for comparison of grades with other universities and for sharing their feedback on the utility of the tool.
The Grading Tables should be submitteed at the following email Valère Meus Valere.Meus@UGent.be the Egracons project co-ordinator by 24th June.
The EGRACONS project has prepared a number of files to help you with the development of grading tables. The Grading Table Template can be accessed at http://egracons.eu/document/grading-table-instructions-and-template. It offers the possibility of supplying the English translation of degree titles at the host university as well, as these are easier to understand by the people converting the grades at the home university.
