EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION PROJECT.
LINDQUIST, E.F.; AND OTHERS
TO AID DATA COLLECTION ANALYSIS, STORAGE, AND DISSEMINATION, INSTRUMENTS AND PROCEDURES WERE DEVELOPED FOR COLLECTING INFORMATION ON ALL ASPECTS OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR A LARGE POPULATION OF SCHOOLS, INCLUDING INFORMATION ON INDIVIDUAL PUPILS, SCHOOL PERSONNEL, SCHOOLS, AND SCHOOL DISTRICTS. COMPUTER PROGRAMS AND DATA-PROCESSING TECHNIQUES AND SYSTEMS FOR TRANSCRIBING, INTEGRATING, AND STORING THIS INFORMATION HAD TO BE DEVELOPED, ALONG WITH A SYSTEM TO SORT AND DISSEMINATE THE NEEDED INFORMATION TO SCHOOLS AND OTHER AGENCIES UPON REQUEST. THE BEGINNING PHASE OF THE PROJECT INVOLVED DETERMINING WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT INDIVIDUAL PUPILS, PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL PERSONNEL, AND SCHOOL DISTRICTS WAS TO BE COLLECTED AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF DATA COLLECTION INSTRUMENTS. THIS INCLUDED REVIEWING THE RELATED RESEARCH AND COLLECTING AVAILABLE MATERIALS FOR GATHERING SUCH DATA. PILOT TESTS WERE MADE OF THE STENCIL CARD METHOD OF PREPARING INPUT. THE TESTS WERE SUCCESSFUL IN GRADES 3 THROUGH 12. PRIMARY CHILDREN EXHIBITED DIFFICULTY IN KEEPING THE CARDS ALIGNED FOR STENCILING. A THOROUGH ANALYSIS OF THE ELEMENTS OF THE INFORMATION SYSTEM INDICATED THAT THE SUCCESS OF THE SYSTEM WOULD REST LARGELY IN THE HANDS OF INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PRINCIPALS AND THAT EACH OF THEM MUST THOROUGHLY UNDERSTAND ITS BASIC PRINCIPLES AND PROCEDURES IF IT IS TO SUCCEED.
