Design of an Instructional Management System. SWRL Working Paper.
McManus, John F., Ed.
This is a collection of 12 working papers dealing with instructional management systems (IMS). The papers are divided into three sections--systems definition, pedagogical studies, and hardware/software studies. IMS is generically defined as a set of procedures and mechanisms for gathering and processing pupil data and returning useful information to those persons responsible for some phase of pupil performance. This definition requires further consideration of its two components: (1) the communications system used for moving data through IMS and (2) the data-gathering techniques, processing requirements, output report generation, and audiences involved in the successful operation of IMS. The first component is discussed in the first section of the papers, the second component is dealt with in the remaining two sections. (Author/IRT)
