A Study of University of Minnesota Registration Procedures.
Registration procedures for fall quarter 1973 were observed and participants interviewed. Contrary to popular belief, 80% of the students completed registration (obtaining class cards and a fee statement) within one half hour. An analysis of the data suggests some issues regarding the social function within the institution of present procedures. The ability of a proposed computerized system to rationalize present procedures is questioned. In addition, questions are raised as to how dysfunctional placing primary emphasis on efficiency might be to other values within the institution. (Author)
