Fall Department Head Report--Reporting Booklet 2.0 to the Massachusetts Division of Occupational Education (Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 1975) for Business/Data Processing.
Management and Information System for Occupational Education, Winchester, MA.
The reporting booklet is required for the Census Data System (CDS) of the Management Information System for Occupational Education (MISOE); it contains the reporting forms which collect data that describe program structure and job-entry skill outcomes expected of program completors in the individual occupational education area of business/data processing. Utilization of instructional area is also determined. This booklet contains the terminal performance objectives (TERMOBS) for this program area. They are actually the forms by which the skills of program completors are reported by department heads. CDS, one of two major subsystems of the integrated management information system, was developed to provide occupational education managers with comprehensive data on which to base rational management decisions. Essentially, CDS contains descriptive information systematically structured in a manner which allows it to be used as a basis for sampling evaluative research studies. CDS collects and stores census data for all school systems offering occupational education programs, including all data formerly collected by the Annual Federal Report for Occupational Information, except followup data.
