The Use of Unobtrusive Indices To Pulsate Community Feelings.
Barber, Larry W.
This paper points out three data systems built and monitored by a school system in an effort to increase the frequency of correct decisions. The first was the traditional student demographic data system on attendance, dropouts, vandalism, and other information, filed by sex, age, grade, race, and school. In addition, data were collected on failure rate and mobility by school and grade. The second was an attitudinal data system gathered partly from surveys and partly from general information. The third was an attempt to develop a data system that gathered data considered to be political and/or attitudinal. These data systems are credited for allowing many people in the school system to monitor relationships between programs, teachers' and administrators' actions, and later student behavior.
