Transcript Schemas

 The needed schemas to support the PESC & ATC XML Postsecondary Transcript are the  following:

XSLT Files

These files are used in conjuction with Apache-FOP for generating PDF formatted versions of transcripts.

These files are used in conjuction with Apache-FOP for generating HTML formatted versions of transcripts.

Example Transcripts

To assist campuses in mapping their transcripts to the PESC XML Postsecondary  Transcript, OBR has created a sample transcript. The example consists of a sample  paper transcript and the resulting XML transcript.


XML Postsecondary Transcript Acknowledgment

Transcript Acknowledgment and Batch Information

 

Schemas

 
Example Acknowledgment
To assist campuses in creating a PESC Transcript Acknowledgment, OBR has created a  sample acknowledgment. The sample acknowledgment uses the previously created  recommended PESC Postsecondary Transcript found here as its source.
 
Example Batch
 To assist campuses in creating a PESC Batch, OBR has created a sample batch for  viewing.

Tools
There are many tools available for designing, creating, and validating XML documents.  OBR is currently using XMLSpy and OxygenXML for development. This section provides  links to these products and an ATC specific guide to creating and validating an XML  transcript with XMLSpy. In addition, an XML transcript skeleton is available which  provides a starting point from which to build your XML transcript.
