INTRODUCTION
This manual was developed to assist ELL Contacts, and Guidance Counselors translate in the
translation/interpretation of transcripts and grades of students arriving from other countries into Collier
County Public Schools. The manual also includes brief information about the educational systems of the
different countries represented herein which will help in determining how the education of incoming
students compares to the education into which they are about to embark in the United States. Many
systems are similar to ours, but many others differ in various ways, which will affect initial student
placement and performance in our educational system.
The awarding of credits should be done by qualified personel (guidance counselors, ELL contacts,
and/or teachers) to determine how classes and class time compare to those in the United States.
Consequently, when students come in to register, it is advisable to take some time to get information
about the coursework they had in their native country from the students and their parent’s.
Some questions to ask are:
-
How long was the school year? From __________ to __________
How many times per week did you attend each class?
What was the duration of each class?
How long did the course last?
There are many ways to convert this information into our system, once you have the above information.
The following formulas will help in this process:
-7-
MINUTES IN CLASS PER WEEK MULTIPLIED BY NUMBER OF SCHOOL DAYS DIVIDED BY 60 =
CREDIT HOURS.
- 135 + hrs. = 1 credit
- 134 - 67 = ½ credit
- 66 - 0 = 0 credit
Assuming that classes are 45 minutes each,
- 3 times per week = 108 days
- 2 times per week = 72 days
- 1 time per week = 36 days
Example: A student attended an algebra class two times per week and the classes were 45 minutes
long. How much credit should he be given for this class?
Formula: Minutes x days divided by 60
Twice a week = 72 days, so
45 x 72 divided by 60 = 54
The student gets no credit for this class.
If the student had attended this class three times per week, then the formula would read:
45 x 108 divided by 60 = 81.
The student would get ½ credit for the course.
If the class was 90 minutes long and took place three times per week, then:
90 x 108 divided by 60 = 162.
The student would get 1 credit for this class.
Note: Fonts may vary as a uniform font across all foreign language scripts is non existant.

Country Notes: Children in Germany start school at the age of 6 and from grades 1 through 4 attend
elementary school. After the 4th grade, they may attend one of three different kinds of schools: Hauptschule,
Realschule or Gymnasium. The Hauptschule (grades 5-9) teaches the same subjects as the Realschule and
Gymnasium, but at a slower pace and with some vocational-oriented courses. The Realschule (grade 5-10)
leads to part-time vocational schools and higher vocational schools. The Gymnasium (grades 5-13) leads to a
degree and prepares students for university study or for a dual academic and vocational credential. The most
common education tracks offered by the standard Gymnasium are classical language, modern language, and
mathematics-natural science.

Diploma Awarded: “Apolyterion” Certificate of Completion
Academic Year: September-June
Country Notes: At State high-schools grades obtained account for only around 25% of the final grade
for each topic, with the remaining 75% assigned by the teacher, in a minimally transparent way. Greek
and Cypriot universities ignore high school grades almost entirely. While a high-school diploma is
mandatory for university attendance, admissions are decided almost exclusively on the basis of scores
of university entrance examinations that all university candidates are required to take. North Cyprus has
a population of ¼ million, and is a de facto independent republic recognized only by Turkey. It is almost
entirely Turkish-speaking.

Diploma Awarded: At the end of secondary school there is a “GCSE” exam in each subject. At the
end of the tertiary stage, students take an “A” level exam in each subject. GCSE = General
Certificate of Secondary Education “A” Level = Advanced Level examination. Tertiary Stage is often
called the “Sixth Form” (grade 11 = Lower Sixth, grade 12 = Upper Sixth) or “college.”
Academic Year: September - June

Country Notes: Compulsory education ends when the student is 16. Students specialize a little
when they are 13; choosing subjects in whom they want to take the GCSE exam. The national
average on the GCSE is a “D” grade; students who fail the exam simply don’t receive a grade.
Students specialize to a great degree at age 16 when they choose 3 or 4 (maximum) subjects to
study for two years, leading to the “A” level exams. Students are encouraged to follow either Arts or
Science, rather than a mixture of both. Study for “A” levels is very intensive and students are
expected to read extensively around the subject and to write essays regularly. The normal
requirement for university entrance is 2/3 “A” levels at grade B/C. The British school system is
demanding: few than 10% of students take “A” level study probably have attained the equivalent of
American junior college education.

Academic Year: October-July
Kidergarten
Country Notes: Private Secondary/ High Schools are called “College”. Public Secondary/ High Schools are called “Lycée”. PK/Kindergarten is three years. The
official language in Haiti is still French and classes, especially in the private schools, are still being conducted in French. In the rural areas some school conduct
classes in Haitian Creole, but for the most part, French is the language of instruction. Haitian Creole is taught as a secondary language. In Haiti promotion from
one grade to another differs greatly in comparison to the U.S. educational system. Haiti uses the Total Net Average System (TNS’s) to promote students to the
next grade level. TNS is based on the Total Net Average points received on all subjects combined. Passing Grades – based on a 50 percentile basal (or 5.0) for
promotion. (A student might fail one or more subjects, but, if his/her T.N.A. is 5 or more – using the 1 through 10 scale– he/she would still be promoted.) Any
student whose T.N.A. falls at 49.9 (4.9) or less would not be considered for promotion. Administrative Placement – Neither the concept nor the idea exists in the
Haitian School System. Any child who does not master his or her skills would have to stay at the present grade until he/she reaches 18 or 19 years of age or
decides to drop out. To Grade Subjects Individually – Add all grades obtained for the subject/skills; add all maximum point allowable. Then divide the net total
obtained for the subject by the total Max. Point Allowable. The result is your grade point. To determine grade percent divide subject grade by maximum grade.
Convert to letter grade under “grading system”. “admise en” - promoted to “retenu” – retained.

Country Notes: Competition is fierce in education in South Korea. 97% of South Korea'n students
complete high school, the highest percentage in any country.South Korea was the first country in the
world to provide high-speed internet access from every school. English is considered one of the
most important subjects; students begin learning English in the third year of elementary school.
Passing through the grade levels is based upon the student's age until the final year of middle school
when examination scores become very important to gain entrance into the top high schools. High
schools teach students from 1st grade (age 17) to 3rd grade (age 19); most graduate at age 19. With
up to 11 subjects, their curriculum is rigorous, as is the schedule. It is not abnormal for students to
arrive home from school at midnight, after intensive "self-study" sessions supported by the school.

Country Notes: The official and dominant language is Lao, French, is common in government
and commerce and is studied by many, while the study of English has increased in recent
years. There are schools in nearly every village, most schools are poorly constructed--of
bamboo and thatch--and staffed by only one or two teachers who are paid low wages. Many
village schools have only one or two grades, and teaching materials are scarce. Because
teachers are paid irregularly, they spend significant amounts of time in other livelihood
activities, with the result that in many locations classes are actually held for only a few hours a
day. For students who do not live in a provincial center, attendance at secondary school
requires boarding away from home.

Country Notes: 90% of Lithuanians speak at least one foreign language and half of the population
speaks two foreign languages, mostly Russian and English or Polish. Most Lithuanian schools teach
English as a first foreign language, but students may also study German, or, in some schools,
French. Schools where Russian and Polish are the primary languages of education exist in the
areas populated by these minorities.

Country Notes: Paraguay is the only truly bilingual country in South America. Guaraní and Spanish
are both official languages. The Guaraní language is spoken by up to 90% of the population which
has contributed to educational difficulties, thus a bilingual program to help native Guaraní-speaking
children progressively gain oral and written skills in Spanish after entering school has been
established.

Country Notes: Most Filipino students attend private schools, the majority of which are run by
Catholic institutions (about 90%), the remainder being mainly Chinese schools. These schools have
a standard of education at least as good as that of an average American school. If a student fails
one subject (usually below 75% mark), he or she has to repeat the subject during the following
school year. If a student fails in three subjects, he or she has to repeat the whole school year.
Subject choice: In comparison with U.S. high schools, there are very few elective subjects.
Mandatory subjects are Philippine History, Philippine Government, English, Filipino, Mathematics,
Natural Sciences, Arts, Physical Education and Military Training. The Filipinos consider English as
their second language and English is mandatory from nursery (age 4) onwards.

Country Notes: Poland established the world's first state ministry of education in 1773. Because
getting a 1 in any subject means that the student has to repeat the year, including all subjects that
were passed, teachers are reluctant to give a failing grade and usually allow some form of special
examination to correct the grade to 2. For the same reason, the failing grades are usually only given
in the "important" subjects (like Polish language or mathematics).

Country Notes: Romanian high school curricula have recently been restructured. In 2006, the
theory of evolution, which has been taught since the country's Communist era, has been dropped
from the compulsory curriculum nationwide. Instead, students are taught 7-day Creationism in
Orthodox religion classes.

Country Notes: South Africa has eleven official languages: While each language is formally equal
to every other, the three most spoken first home languages are Zulu (23.8%), Xhosa (17.6%) and
Afrikaans (13.3%). Despite the fact that English is recognised as the language of commerce and
science, it is spoken by only 8.2% of South Africans at home. Among the South African population,
only 14% of blacks have an education of high school or higher, whereas 40% of Indians and 65% of
Whites have an education of high school or higher as a result of the lingering effects of Apartheid
which was abolished in 1986.

admission to freshman standing. Students who complete an “Escuela de Formación Profesional”, Level II
(vocational), receive the “Técnico Especialista Diploma”. Students may also be considered for freshman admission
in academic programs for which a vocational and technical background is appropriate. Although most Spanish
students are enrolled in public schools, a substantial percentage attend private schools, most of which are
administered by the Catholic Church. School is compulsory between the ages of 6 and 14. Students may then opt
to continue on to BUP, or a vocational school. When students complete the BUP program, they enter the one-year
COU (College Orientation Year). Students must pass a final examination at the end of the COU before continuing to
university, and must also take additional entrance exams as specified by the particular university.
