Computer Applications to School Management Problems, Report Number II.
Lamkin, Bill D.
This report describes the present status, services, and applications of three projects established in 1966 in the Austin Public Schools. These projects, now fully operational, involve information processing, school-wide test scoring and analysis, and a data bank. The information system was established at a junior high school and a senior high school to produce report cards for students at the two schools and eventually, as time and equipment would permit, to perform other services to the school. The project for school-wide test scoring and analysis was initiated to save clerical and professional time at the individual school and central office levels. Major products of this project include individual school and school-wide norms and information for use in research projects. The data bank project was instituted at a junior high school to obtain as much information as possible concerning the students. Additional discussion of the projects deals with data gathering and storage, information currently on file and available for research use, programs written for the projects, and personnel and facilities.
