Western Nevada Regional Education Center, Lovelock.
The necessary handbooks for use of the Student Information System (SIS), developed and tested by the Western Nevada Regional Education Center under a 1968-71 Title III (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) grant, are presented in this volume. As noted, the purpose of the SIS is to supply data and information to persons or organizations who make decisions affecting education in Nevada; the types of data incorporated in the SIS include student entry data (e.g., name and address), personnel data (e.g., transportation and learning or activity limitations), standardized test scores, and student accounting (e.g., health data and academic records). In the document, the SIS design is described, and criteria for data collection are included. Pamphlets presented in the document include Sample Book, Using Student Data from Computer Printouts, Data Collector's Handbook, User's Book, Data Plotting System, and Developing an Educational Information System. The appendices provide information on the Op-Scan Data Collection Sheets and data error routines. (PS)
