Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational Education.
The status of State management information systems (MISs) is documented in this study, in which interviews were conducted with MIS directors and senior administrators from agencies in the 47 participating States. Constraints to improving these systems are also described and recommendations are provided to the U.S. Office of Education (USOE) to facilitate MIS improvements. Chapter I contains an overview, the objectives, and the design of the study. Chapter II documents the current status of State MISs using a scheme developed for that purpose. Chapter III reports on the outcomes and benefits accruing to States that received part C grants from USOE for MIS purposes. Chapter IV describes reported constraints to improving MIS in the States. Chapter V lists recommendations for facilitating improvements in State MISs and the rationale for them. The appendixes include lists of consultants, State divisions of vocational education participating in the study, interviewers assisting with data collection at regional sites, and a copy of the letter to States describing interview procedures.
