Statewide Measures Inventory. Technical Report 68.
Wing, Paul; And Others
The Statewide Measures Inventory is essentially a list of items of information, along with concise definitions and other information of interest, relevant to statewide postsecondary education planning and management. It has been designated primarily as a working document for use by state-level postsecondary education planners and decision makers to improve and simplify communication through increased standardization of terminology and usage, to provide assistance to those concerned with developing and designing data bases and information systems, and to suggest ways that statewide planning and decision making might be improved through the identification of problems and issues to which the measures in the inventory are relevant. The eight sections of the inventory are General Information About the State, Student Access, Manpower Programs, Enrollments, Finances, Staff, and Facilities. Also included with the inventory (including an index, glossary, and bibliography) is "An Overview and Guide to the Use of the Statewide Measures Inventory," containing information on its origins, general structure, and possible uses. Although its primary target audience is policy makers and analysts in state agencies, it is anticipated that postsecondary education institutions and national organizations also will find it of interest.
