Information Requirements Analysis in a Secondary School System.
Mowery, Kay A.
Included are an examination of the formal structure of information collection and recording activities, and a discussion of the analysis of the resulting data. Although specific application of these ideas is applied to a secondary school system, the applicability of the formal structures and analytic methods is thought to be general. In section I, traditional structures are formalized: the school system's organizational structure and the functions, inputs, and outputs of the typical department. In section II, methods of analysis for functions and data are explored. In the final section, general procedures are suggested for the collection and recording of requirements and for analysis. Possible utilization of the computer in manipulating the large volumes of data is explored. The appendix contains a brief review of the literature on collection and analysis methods. (RR)
