Data Processing and a State Educational Information System. A Pilot Project.
Educational Research Services, Inc., White Plains, NY.
This is a report of a pilot project directed toward planning an educational information network. The network will eventually connect the information processing capabilities of the New York City school system to information processing of the State Education Department in Albany. The study reported the fall enrollment and degrees conferred in higher educational institutions throughout New York State and studied how teacher personnel information was collected, processed, and then transmitted from the New York City school system to the State Education Department. The document contains samples of the various types of forms used in the reporting and also discusses the usefulness and the problems of each item of information. A chapter is devoted to the implications of the pilot project for building a State education information network that may also be coordinated with the U.S. Office of Education. A digest of the results of a sampling of higher educational institution data processing programs currently in use is provided in an appendix. (DE)
