Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Business Education Service.
The curriculum guide, which was prepared to serve as an aid to all teachers of business data processing, gives a complete outline for a high-school level course in both Common Business Oriented Language (COBOL) and Report Program Generator (RPG). Parts one and two of the guide together comprise an introduction to data processing, which deals with the elements of a data processing system, and to unit record equipment, which covers keypunch, wiring, printing, program control, and field and class selection. They contain 24 sections, each of which presents units of instruction, review questions, and laboratory problems. Part three, electronic data processing, contains 10 sections, variously organized, which cover flowcharting, and COBOL and RPG programing. Part four, teaching aids, contains unit record laboratory problems, practice sets dealing with a variety of computer programs, 57 overhead projector foils for both unit record and programing instruction, and a bibliography of books, IBM manuals, and recommended films.
