The Educational Administrator's Survival Guide to Administrative Uses of Microcomputers.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Public Schools.
Guidelines are presented for use by educational administrators in selecting a microcomputer for administrative purposes. The selection process described is based on the determination of functions to be automated, and the identification of the software that best automates these functions. Topics addressed include general software applications that can be used for educational administration functions, software specific to educational administration functions, criteria for evaluating software and hardware, microcomputers connected to mainframe computers, data management systems, electronic spread sheet systems, and word processing systems. A non-evaluative listing is provided of specific programs available for the following categories: athletics; attendance accounting; budgeting, accounting and other business management software for the district level and the school level; grade analysis and reporting; guidance; information for management; instructional management; inventory and property records; media center; planning; scheduling; staff personnel; and student records. A four-page list of software sources completes the document. (LMM)
