Survey and Analysis of Educational Information. Final Report.
Association for Educational Data Systems, Washington, DC.
This document reports the results of a study that surveyed and analyzed educational information at certain educational agencies to determine whether or not certain information items are presently maintained at various State departments of education and at certain large school districts. A summary of information maintained by each State department of education is provided including data relative to the form in which information is maintained, the information itself, the years for which it has been maintained in current form, the equipment used, the time of collection, the level of aggregation, the type of school, and the educational range. Another part of the report presents information by categories of items with specific information on the number of State departments of education maintaining information for each item on hard copy, punched cards, or magnetic tape. The report concludes by recommending that (1) efforts be made by State departments of education to bring uniformity to educational information and to its form of maintenance and (2) that this report be updated annually. Extensive appendixes, including computer printouts, are provided. (Appendix K may photograph poorly.) (Author/JF)
