Computer-Assisted College Administration. Final Report.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Connecticut offered a part-time training program "Computer-Assisted-College-Administration" during the academic year 1969-70. Participants were trained in the utilization of computer-assisted methods in dealing with the common tasks of college administration, the problems of college development and promotion, and the capabilities of computers in the decisionmaking process. The data processing equipment regularly available to the participants was the IBM-1130 System, as well as teletypewriter consoles for access to a time-shared computer system. The main programming language used was FORTRAN. Thirty participants entered the program, of whom 21 continued for 2 semesters and obtained a certificate. This report briefly discusses the methods of instruction, the difficulties encountered and some ideas that will be implemented in the 1970-71 CACA course. The appendices include a list of the students who completed the course, a sample copy of the certificate, and a newspaper article about the course. (AF)
