Integrating Postsecondary Program Planning and Employment Demand. AIR Forum Paper 1978.
Hall, Toni
A major state-coordinated program in Texas is helping education decision makers and the general public who need information about inputs, activities and cost, and also about the results and impacts of educational programs. Educators have encountered two major problems in obtaining information for effective planning and management: the lack of reliable data with which to make decisions and the absence of systematic data analysis that translates raw data into usable information. The program now operational in Texas includes two major components to address these problems: (1) the Texas Student Follow-Up Information System (TEX-SIS) which provides postsecondary supply data to assist in the development, operation, and evaluation of community college programs; and (2) the primary work of the Texas 1202 (Commission, a project to produce educational supply/occupational demand information for education decision-makers, students and counselors, and the general public. Dissemination materials and carefully identified target populations make up the components for distribution of the Tex-SIS follow-up data and the supply/demand information of the 1202 Commission. A list of resource materials is provided. (Author/JMD)
