State-Level Management Information Systems for Higher Education: A Survey Summary.
Barak, Robert J.
A 1974 survey sent to state agencies responsible for higher education in each of the fifty states, attempted to ascertain the state of the art of statewide management information systems for higher education. The survey requested information on seven areas of state level MIS: (1) the types of analytical tools, computer programs and systems being used; (2) the stage of development of each of these tools, programs and systems based on a five stage development process; (3) the organization developing the tools, programs and systems if different from the agency being surveyed; (4) a rating of the tools, programs and systems; (5) a brief explanation of items rated unsatisfactory; (6) the users of the tools, programs and systems; and (7) whether the tools, programs and systems were, in the opinion of the responder, considered to comprise an integrated information system. Of the 50 surveys sent there was an 86 percent return rate. The data provides some idea as to the relative progress of the various agencies in developing management information systems for higher education at the state level. (Author/KE)
