Education Information Systems. Papers Presented at the Association for Educational Data Systems Annual Convention (Phoenix, Arizona, May 3-7, 1976).
Association for Educational Data Systems, Washington, DC.
Two abstracts and seventeen papers on educational information systems presented at the Association for Educational Data Systems (AEDS) 1976 convention are included in this document. An article describing the evolution of information systems provides an overview of educational data systems. Seven articles concern the implementation and use of information systems by educational administrators: five of these articles focus on public schools and school districts, and two articles focus on higher education. A computer model for simulating faculty flow and salary schedules in higher education is also presented. Two papers describe uses of minicomputers, one for student record keeping and one for predicting resource requirements. A low cost approach to on-line computer systems is presented in one paper, and seven papers describe the use of the computer in salary schedule evaluation, program budgeting and accounting, pupil information, studies of school attendance and attendance boundaries, and test scoring and reporting.
