A Word Processing Data and Information Model for Program Management.
Richart, Victoria B.
A management information system model was designed to provide data for planning, directing, and evaluating programs for the National Origin Minority Education (NOME) office of the New Hampshire Department of Education. NOME is federally funded to provide training to local school district and community members regarding the educational needs of National Origin Minority students. In order to provide increased quality and quantity of service, the design of the model includes a structured system for collecting, storing, retrieving, and disseminating data that considers cost, time, efforts, and materials. The design of the model is traced through the following: (1) a brief literature review on general management information needs; (2) the specific data items to be sent to the federal government from NOME; and (3) data and information exchanges with state departments of other states' minority community groups, organizations, and institutions. Examples illustrate the data entry forms used, the codes, how the data are stored, and a variety of data retrieval outputs. This word processing data and information system model is recommended to researchers, educational administrators of small school districts, and other school personnel as a basis for making informed decisions.
