A Suggested Pupil Requirements File: Educational Data Processing Planning Study #1.
Patton, Stanley R.
This document contains a design for creating an educational data bank of pupil personnel information. The specific information that should be collected and maintained in such an updatable data bank is described in detail. The document provides instructions on interpretation of this data for (1) predicting approximate percentages of students who would not complete high school (both individual and group studies); (2) predicting the approximate number of students who would not complete formal studies at the time of graduation; (3) aiding proper authorities by predicting which students in high school would not continue past 12th grade (individual predictions); (4) establishing types of occupational directions that past groups of dropouts and terminal students have followed and attempting to direct them into, and prepare them for, useful types of occupations; and (5) aiding school counselors in guiding the right students into district-provided educational programs. The document also suggests ways to provide a fail-safe system to protect the privacy of the information in the data files. (DE)
