Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus. Management Improvement Program.
This document is one of five manuals designed to improve management practices in Ohio two-year colleges. The guidelines and criteria presented here are intended to be used as yardsticks for institutional evaluation of student registration and class scheduling practices. A chapter on the planning process discusses the steps to be taken in planning, definitions of terms, outputs expected, goals, and objectives. A chapter on schedule preparation discusses criteria for curriculum and cost evaluations, and outlines methods of determining the numbers of class sections and day and time assignments, and of determining who should be involved in such decision-making. A chapter on space scheduling discusses who is responsible for assigning classrooms, what process should be used, how to settle disputes, when assignments must be made, when to notify students and faculty, and how best to utilize space. A chapter on registration systems provides general guidelines for advance, open, and late registration. The final chapter discusses data needs and data processing methods, the use of commercially developed computer-based registration and scheduling systems, and on-line computer registration techniques. A flow chart of a card-oriented registration system for a small college is appended. (DC)
