Information System for Educational Policy and Administration.
Clayton, J. C., Jr.
Educational Information System (EIS) is a proposed computer-based data processing system to help schools solve current educational problems more efficiently. The system would allow for more effective administrative operations in student scheduling, financial accounting, and long range planning. It would also assist school trustees and others in decision making, improve the school's ability to evaluate its educational policy, and provide the school with data to assess the strengths and weaknesses of its educational program. Such a system furnishes information that allows school administrators and faculty to be more effective in decision making and teaching, and also releases them from clerical duties so they can spend more time educating students.
