Data Processing Education in the Schools of Pennsylvania, 1967-1968.
Schrag, Adele F.
All Pennsylvania high schools, vocational-technical schools, community colleges, and 2-year extensions of Pennsylvania University were studied to determine what data processing content was being taught in the schools and to assess whether a need existed to train teachers of data processing or to improve the training of those now involved in teaching classes. The first questionnaire was used to gather data about types of courses, availability of unit record equipment, availability of computers for students' use, and name of instructor; a total of 582 questionnaires (81 percent) were returned. The second questionnaire was used to secure course content, objectives, and actual utilization of equipment, and 151 of 153 forms (98 percent) were returned. Ten conclusions and seven recommendations based on the conclusions are given. (GR)
