Information Transfer and Research Utilization in Education.
An evaluation of what comprises an effective educational information system, where we now stand with regard to such systems, and how we can improve these systems so that they are usable for educational decision makers and practitioners at all levels. The needs for a multi-level information system, interpersonal communication "a warm and walking computer terminal," tailoring of information to the users' requirements, and information sources that are extremely accessible to the user are stressed. A survey of teachers and principals indicated what respondents want from an information system is: (1) accessible information, (2) current and comprehensive information, (3) rapid response to queries, (4) verification of reliability and (5) flexible products and flexible services.
