GUIDELINES FOR THE DESIGN OF AN ES '70 INFORMATION PROCESSING AND PROGRESS MONITORING SYSTEM.
ROSENTHAL, MORRIS
THE COLLECTION, PROCESSING, SYNTHESIZING, AND DISSEMINATION OF DATA ON THE PROGRESS OF ALL EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM (ES) '70 PROGRAMS IS AN ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT IN ACHIEVING THE PROGRAMS' OBJECTIVES. THESE PROGRAMS EMBRACE 17 INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE PRIMARY NETWORK ALONE AND ARE BASED ON A UNIQUE APPROACH OF "LOCAL-STATE-FEDERAL PARTNERSHIP" WHICH REQUIRES FEEDBACK AND INTERCHANGE OF DATA FOR MONITORING, IMPROVING, AND MODIFYING PROGRAM ELEMENTS. A SUGGESTED INFORMATION SYSTEM DESIGN APPROACH INCLUDES AWARENESS OF THE PROGRAM'S EVOLVING NATURE, THE NECESSITY FOR PARTICIPATION BY OPERATING LEADERSHIP ON ALL LEVELS, REPORTS AND ANALYSES AT VARIOUS LEVELS, AND THE NEED TO WEAVE THE OVERALL DESIGN OF THE SYSTEM INTO THE ES '70 ACTIVITIES, PROGRAMS, AND ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURES. THE INFORMATION SYSTEM WILL COLLECT, FILTER, AND DISSEMINATE DATA ON A NUMBER OF LEVELS, SERVING A MULTIPLICITY OF FUNCTIONS. INSTEAD OF A MONOLITHIC SUPERIMPOSED STRUCTURE, IT IS CONCEIVED TO BE STRUCTURED SO AS TO ENCOURAGE CONSISTENT, FLEXIBLE, AND CONTINUOUS COLLECTION, PROCESSING, AND INTERCHANGE OF PERTINENT DATA FOR USE ON AN INTERDISTRICT, INTERSTATE BASIS. AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF THIS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM WOULD BE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A DATA RECORDING, PROCESSING, AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM THAT WOULD BE CAPABLE OF MONITORING THE ENTIRE PROGRAM AND FEEDING BACK RESULTS WHICH WOULD OPTIMIZE THE SELF-CORRECTING NATURE OF SUCH A SYSTEM. THIS DOCUMENT IS AN EXTRACT FROM ONE SECTION OF THE MATERIAL PREPARED FOR THE MEETING OF THE ES '70 NETWORK SUPERINTENDENTS (ATLANTA, FEBRUARY 16-17, 1968). (EM)
