The Data Entry System for the Sample Data System of MISOE [Management Information System for Occupational Education]: Operations Report No. 1.
Creager, John A.
The report specifies the design of the data entry system for the Sample Data System subsystems (SDS-1 and SDS-2) providing connectability to meet previously specified purposes and functions of the Management Information System for Occupational Education (MISOE). General assumptions for specifying the SDS data entry system are stated including the important assumption that initial processing of information be done by optical scanning using an OPSCAN-100 (Digitek) and 24K Honeywell computer system. General specifications for operational MISOE files interfacing the analysis system are presented, with the file identification-descriptor system designed to ensure connectability of MISOE components. The specifications for the individual file types as they are developed longitudinally are also given. The general considerations for moving from available instrumentation to operational MISOE SDS files are presented using flow charts and accompanying text to provide an overview of the SDS data entry system. More precise specifications of optical scanning and of the data entry operations for the individual pieces of data entering the system from the following batteries are provided: student input, student process, student product, impact, teacher, and administrator batteries.
