SIS (Student Followup Information System) has been developed by community/junior colleges in the State of Texas in response to the need for systematic and valid means of collecting followup data. SIS is composed of a series of data collection devices designed and tested in a multitude of different environments in various colleges throughout Texas. Built around the concept of an educational management information system, SIS is divided into seven subsystems, each with its own instruments and methods of processing. The brochure describes seven subsystems, each of which provides a means for collecting a different type information: (1) Student's Educational Intent (to assess student educational goals or intent); (2) Withdrawal Followup (of students who withdraw from college or individual courses), (3) Nonreturning Student Followup (of graduates who, after completing a specific enrollment period, do not return for a subsequent enrollment period); (4) Graduate Followup (of students who graduate from associate degree or certificate/diploma programs, both university transfer/academic and occupational/technical); (5) Employer Followup (for responses by employers of program graduates who participated in a previously conducted graduate survey); (6) Adult Continuing Education Followup (of students who complete preparatory, supplemental, or other adult continuing education courses); and (7) State Followup Reporting (for statewide studies). The brief description of each subsystem includes notes on how the questionnaires were designed and a list of the types of information collected. (LAS)
