Transmission of Data through Technology. Final Report [and] Manual.
A project was conducted to develop the methods, procedures, standards, and processes to enable adult basic and literacy education programs funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Bureau of Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) to submit their student and staff data via computer disk. During the project, the Center for Literacy, in collaboration with ABLE, identified the data elements to be included that enable programs to meet PDE requirements and individual program needs. FoxPro software was used to develop a disk with directories of templates. A comprehensive manual that enables the program users ease of adoption and accurate submission of data was developed. As a result, all ABE programs funded by ABLE now have an option of submitting their data by disk. Submitting data via disk eliminates the burdensome completion of bubble forms and information can be monitored on a regular basis. (This packet includes run-time versions of templates of directories for the data required by ABLE for both DOS and Macintosh systems and the comprehensive manual containing all the documentation needed to use the application.)
