The UWIT Application Integration Services team in partnership with our Student Information Systems team has begun the design and development of SWS Test Scores. This new resource to be scheduled for release by end of November will allow developers to programmatically access official test scores such as GRE, SAT, GMAT, TOEFL, etc… The primary motivation for the development of this resource is to support the UWSDB transition project, currently in progress, so we can move applications from UWSDB to Student Web Services. The second reason is to support an enterprise need to provide programmatic access to test scores without the need for a local data extract.
While we are in development you can learn more by referencing the SWS test scores RESTFul web service design doc and shortly after the resource is released we will provide developer docs.
Many thanks to the following departments for helping us understand requirements and create an initial service design:
- UW Admissions
- College of Education
- Computer Science and Engineering
- Health Services
- Physics Department
Please give us any feedback on the design as the next two weeks is when we will be best positioned to accept major design change requests.
