TES was launched by UCOP in 2004 as a pilot program to increase college readiness, especially among disadvantaged students at UC partner high schools. Charles Masten, a member of UCOP’s Institutional Research and Academic Planning unit, was instrumental in conceiving and designing the TES system.

The service has continued to grow since its inception: During the academic year 2013-14, TES served 105 high schools and evaluated 213,582 individual student transcripts.
