The Historical Problem

Traditionally education data and credentials for educational attainment have been maintained across many systems (e.g., course grades and assessments). These data must be integrated to truly understand a student’s goals as well as their progress toward those goals. At the same time, it is very important not to use meaningful identifiers such as Social Security Numbers which introduce privacy and security issues.  eScholar Uniq-ID solves both of these problems.
