A Responsive High School Feedback System.
Duby, Paul B.
AIR Professional File, n40 p1-8 Spr 1991
Few higher education institutions provide systematic information for high schools beyond what is involved in the application/admissions process. The Northern Michigan University (NMU) High School Feedback System was designed to meet the needs expressed by high school personnel in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for increased frequency, quantity, and quality of feedback about students enrolled from their institutions. The system provides the high schools with feedback for curricular evaluation and more effective academic advising. In its complete form, the model provides a wealth of information to its feeder institutions. A comprehensive feedback report has also been created to provide information on the academic credentials, performance, and graduation of students from those high schools providing only a few students to NMU. The NMU model provides for the internal routing of data as well as the transmission of a wide variety of evaluatory information directly back to high schools. The feedback system was developed using DataEase. The model represents a formal commitment on the part of one college administration to share systematically with the high schools on which it depends heavily. Included is a detailed discussion on the operation of the NMU feedback system. Appended are illustrated examples of each main component of the NMU High School Feedback System. Includes 7 references.
