Appendix X. ComField Information Management System.
Coffin, Robert W.
This appendix outlines the ComField information management system which is designed to give the project management a comprehensive tool for decisionmaking and to free instructors from tasks of keeping current records of every student's performance, help them plan their time more efficiently for counseling students and planning instruction, and provide them a means of perceiving a student in a broad context. The information content in the ComField Project is listed under the three categories which constitute the data plex: staff resource file, student file, and instructional systems file. Information management within the instructional program is discussed with diagrams of the instructional system, of the total instructional complex, and of the relationships between research and development, personnel, and instructional functions. Three flow charts present (1) communication and information flow to support the instructional program, (2) communication and information flow to support adaptation and supplier functions, and (3) communication and information flow to support personnel and research and development. This document and SP 002 155-SP 002 180 comprise the appendixes for the ComField Model Teacher Education Program Specifications in SP 002 154. (JS)
