A computer-oriented filing system is considered necessary to handle the approximately 1,500 students likely to be enrolled in the Georgia model program to train elementary teachers (ED 025 491) by the time it reaches sustained operation. The system of individualized scheduling involves establishing and maintaining a computer storage filing system on the progress of each student, the status and capabilities of faculty and staff, and the status of physical space and equipment. Since students will be handled on a distributed basis, the filing system must be capable of continuous daily updating and access. The system can be implemented at the University of Georgia using existing hardware (IBM 360/65 computer with remote terminals--also on Univak 9200) and software to be developed. Six basic programs will be required: 1) file maintenance (one for each file program), 2) testing program, 3) evaluation program, 4) scheduling program, 5) miscellaneous reporting programs, and 6) master internal central program. The filing system will require eight basic files each with two types of basic information: 1) identification, background, and performance history data, and 2) current status data. The eight files are student record file, testing decision tables, evaluation decision tables, scheduling decision tables, faculty and staff file, space and equipment file, accounting files, and internal central files and program.
