AACRAO EDGE

Welcome to the AACRAO Electronic Database for Global Education (EDGE), a web-based resource for the evaluation of foreign educational credentials. Ultimately every educational system in the world will be included as an EDGE profile. The database currently includes educational system profiles and is being expanded regularly and updated as educational systems change.

Each EDGE educational system profile includes:

  • An overview describing the educational history of the country.
  • An educational ladder or ladders to reflect changes in the educational structure
  • Grading system(s)
  • Sample credentials
  • Placement recommendations
  • List of postsecondary institutions
  • Resources used to develop the profile
  • Author biography and notes
  • Glossary — when applicable

The AACRAO EDGE is a dynamic resource for evaluating foreign credentials. The web format enables updating and revision as needed.

We solicit subscriber participation in this updating process. Should you discover new information on a country's educational system we ask you to send that information to us at edge@aacrao.org for inclusion in EDGE. If you have original, verified authentic documents, please send such records to us so that we might build the image files of sample credentials. (We will of course preserve privacy by removing student identification information.) We look to subscribers to assist us in making EDGE a valuable and useful resource.
