MiSIS (Michigan Student Information System) Procedures Manual.
The Michigan Student Information System (MiSIS) is the student flow component of the Michigan Community College Occupational Education Evaluation System (MCCOEES), a comprehensive state-wide system for evaluating occupational education. This manual provides comprehensive guidelines for collecting local management information for program and institutional evaluation and improvement using the Michigan Student Information System (MiSIS). The first four sections provide introductory material outlining the objectives, assumptions, and development of MiSIS. Section V examines each of the MiSIS's six subsystems: (1) student's educational intent; (2) withdrawal follow-up; (3) nonreturning student follow-up; (4) graduate follow-up; (5) employer follow-up; and (6) continuing education follow-up. Each subsystem is described in terms of the target population, instrumentation, data collection rationale and procedures, preparation of the data for processing, data processing options, report format and documentation, evaluation of the survey, documentation of the uses of the data, and survey evaluation instruments. Section VI details the relationship between MiSIS and the Vocational Education Data System (VEDS), describing the MiSIS instruments that can be used to comply with VEDS reporting requirements. Section VII underscores the need for a central coordination effort to plan and emphasize certain system activities. Finally, section VIII outlines procedures for releasing and transmitting local data for central processing. Survey questions and MiSIS forms are provided within the appropriate sections. (LL)
