VOCATIONAL EDUCATION INFORMATION SYSTEM. FEDERAL OPERATING MANUAL.
ZWICKEL, I.; AND OTHERS
THE DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP A FEDERAL-LEVEL, VOCATIONAL EDUCATION INFORMATION SYSTEM (VEIS), WERE PRESENTED IN THIS MANUAL. BASIC DESIGN ELEMENTS WERE DETERMINED BY STUDYING THE FEDERAL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION REPORTING REQUIREMENTS FOR EACH STATE AND BY EVALUATING A NUMBER OF IMMEDIATE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS WITHIN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. IT WAS FOUND THAT THESE LATTER REQUIREMENTS, INCLUDING REPORTS TO CONGRESS AND OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES, WERE FREQUENTLY CHANGING. THIS FACTOR MADE IT HIGHLY IMPRACTICAL TO DEVELOP DETAILED SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS AT THE TIME, AS COMPUTER PROGRAMS WOULD HAVE TO BE DEVELOPED ON AN "AS REQUIRED" BASIS. IT WAS DECIDED TO PRESENT ONLY THE INPUT PARAMETERS OF THE SYSTEM, AS THESE WERE BASED ON REQUIREMENTS FINALIZED BY THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION. COMPUTER PROGRAMS WOULD BE DEVELOPED TO HANDLE OUTPUT DATA WHEN REQUIREMENTS ARE DEFINED BY THE VARIOUS SUBSCRIBERS TO THE SYSTEM. THE CONTENTS OF THE MANUAL PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION--(1) A DESCRIPTION OF THE IMMEDIATE OBJECTIVES OF THE SYSTEM, (2) A PRESENTATION OF CRITERIA AND PARAMETERS FOR DEVELOPING A FEDERAL-LEVEL SYSTEM, SUPPORTED BY MAGNETIC TAPE FORMATS AND FEDERAL CODES USED BY THE STATE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION INFORMATION SYSTEM, AND (3) A GLOSSARY OF TERMS COMMONLY USED WITH THE SYSTEM. THE MANUAL IS AN APPENDIX TO THE VEIS FINAL REPORT (AA 000 155) AND SUPPLEMENTS THE 2-PART, VEIS STATE OPERATING MANUAL (AA 000 157, AA 000 158). (JH)
