Information Systems and Performance Measures in Schools.
Coleman, James S.; Karweit, Nancy L.
Large school systems bring various administrative problems in handling scheduling, records, and avoiding making red tape casualties of students. The authors review a portion of the current use of computers to handle these problems and examine the range of activities for which computer processing could provide aid. Since automation always brings the possibility of increased impersonality, methods for using the computer to increase individuality and availability of information are also considered. Finally, the problem of developing measures of school performance based on standardized tests are discussed. (Author/RH)
