Conroy, William G., Jr.; And Others
An overview is provided of the Management Information System for Occupational Education (MISOE). MISOE is described as an interactive, computerized information system designed to be prototypical for the statewide management of education and to help managers at all levels better understand, through numerical analysis of past experience, the causal relationships between current policy and future results. Part I of the report outlines the structure and scope of MISOE, discussing the system's data files, its sampling design, and its data system index. Part II focuses upon policy analysis and data analyses within MISOE and describes dynamic simulation, a process which relates the future consequences of current decisions made within the context of a complex social system. Part III deals with the potential which MISOE has for improving the quality of human life. (Author/PB)
