Kansas/Project Communicate: A Program for the Development of a Comprehensive State Education Information System. Interim Report.
To develop a client-centered information system to support the adoption of innovative instructional practices in Kansas classrooms, a pilot project was organized in 12 districts. Among the objectives were: to establish instructional linkages in a wide range of subject areas; to establish a system that would be generalizable to the rest of Kansas and other states in the Six Midwestern State Consortium; to assist pilot region schools to identify information needs; and to influence educators for more widespread adoption of new educational practices. The first 18 months' interim report describes progress in meeting these objectives and points out specific future needs, especially in the districts' complete utilization of information. The role of the field agent is described as critical. Recommendations by the project director and staff are included. Appendixes include the information request and client evaluation forms. (SK)
