THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STUDENT ACCOUNTING SYSTEM. FINAL REPORT.
ANDERSON, GORDON V.; AND OTHERS
THE AIM OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DEVELOP, DEMONSTRATE, AND EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A PARTICULAR MODEL FOR A STUDENT ACCOUNTING SYSTEM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS, INCORPORATING PREVIOUSLY COLLECTED INFORMATION PLUS ADDITIONAL QUESTIONNAIRE DATA FROM STUDENTS. A CENTRAL DATA BANK WAS ESTABLISHED TO INCLUDE (1) THE ACADEMIC RECORD OF THE STUDENT PRIOR TO ENTRY INTO THE UNIVERSITY, (2) THE RESULTS OF ADMISSION TESTS, INCLUDING THOSE USED FOR PLACEMENT, AND (3) SELECTED BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT THE STUDENT, INCLUDING OCCUPATIONAL CHOICE, MARITAL STATUS, SCHOLARSHIP OR LOAN STATUS, OUTSIDE EMPLOYMENT, HOUSING SITUATION, AND PARENTS' EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT. STUDENTS WERE IDENTIFIED BY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. IT WAS SHOWN THAT A SATISFACTORY SYSTEM FOR STATISTICAL STUDIES COULD BE DEVELOPED BY THE USE OF IBM 1230 ANSWER SHEETS AS QUESTIONNAIRES. THE EXPENSE, HOWEVER, OF GATHERING AND PROCESSING STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRES WAS SO CONSIDERABLE THAT CAREFUL DECISIONS WERE NEEDED TO DETERMINE WHAT QUESTIONS WOULD BE ASKED AND HOW FREQUENTLY THE QUESTIONNAIRES SHOULD BE FILLED OUT.
