Educational Resources Management System. Final Report.
Curtis, William H.
This project resulted in the development of an Educational Resources Management System (ERMS). The primary purpose of the project was to develop a conceptual design for an integrated system of planning-programing-budgeting-evaluating (PPBES) appropriate for local school districts. In an ERM system, emphasis is on outcomes in terms of learners' progress rather than reliance on input measures as a means for evaluating the success of the system. The report includes a conceptual design and describes the activities that are essential to each of the processes of the planning-programing-budgeting-evaluating system. The role of analysis as a means of facilitating choices from among alternative programs is also described. Other supporting descriptions include staff development needs, the relationship of State and Federal educational agencies to the system, and some possible implications for the future of an ERM System. Related documents are ED 049 550 and ED 061 595. (Author)
