Introduction to the Student Flow Model SFM-IA. Technical Report No. 41A. Preliminary Edition.
Johnson, Richard S.
The National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) Student Flow Model (SFM) IA is a tool for analyzing the historical movement of students between the various fields of study and student levels in an institution and for estimating the future enrollments in each student program (or field of study) and student level combination in the institution. Modular in concept, the system can be implemented in phases to permit an institution to begin using its results immediately and to incorporate additional levels of analysis as needed and as the required input data become available. SFM-IA can be used alone in an independent analysis of student progression through the institution. Schools also using the NCHEMS Resource Requirements Prediction Model (RRPM) 1.6 will find SFM-IA useful in projecting future enrollments for RRPM cost projection purposes. Included in this document is a description of the SFM-IA computer programs together with the procedures for gathering and organizing the data necessary to use the various modules. (Author/DGC)
