Management and Information System for Occupational Education. An Overview.
Management and Information System for Occupational Education, Winchester, MA.
Massachusetts Management and Information System for Occupational Education (MISOE) is the prototype for a man machine information system for the statewide management of vocational education at the secondary, post-secondary, and adult levels. Intended to provide a rational process of resource allocation for vocational education as a competitive social service agency, MISOE contains both a static and a dynamic component. Static MISOE, composed of an interrelated census and sample data system which includes the stipulation of program costs and performance objectives for each local education agency in the state, is intended to be the basis for accountability for all of Massachusetts' vocational education programs. Various cost effectiveness analyses will be carried out for static MISOE, which will be integrated with existing Department of Education and Regional Board of Community College information systems. In the summer of 1973, dynamic MISOE, consisting of dynamic simulation and mathematical programing, will be developed. MISOE will be implemented statewide by Massachusetts' Division of Occupational Education during the 1973 school year, with the assistance of five local education agencies.
