Data Processing at North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Division of Teacher Certification.
Wilson, John D.
This document describes a data processing system now being implemented that is designed to provide rapid retrieval of information concerning a certificate holder's status. A brief history of past and present methods of teacher certification processing is included. These methods are then compared to the system currently being implemented. The new system provides the capability of collecting substantially more data and of storing and retrieving it in a meaningful report format. According to the author, the primary benefits of this system over the old are the ease with which inquiries can be answered, the more rigorous editing capabilities, and the faster computer service. Information on the costs, the procedures, and the problems of implementing the system and some indications about the directions of future changes in recordkeeping are included. Numerous charts and sample forms conclude the report. (Author/DN)
