Data Element Dictionary for Vocational Education.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Proaction Inst.
One of 10 publications from a long-range vocational education planning project, this dictionary is designed to help the planner identify vocation planning data elements and organize them for storage and easy accessibility. This publication serves to identify and describe (1) those data elements required to support current planning and administrative needs, (2) certain data elements anticipated as being required for future planning products, (3) certain data elements commonly maintained by institutions for operational and reporting purposes, and (4) certain terms that are needed to help identify institutional characteristics for exchange purposes that are not generally included in an institutional data file. Many of the data elements permit the inclusion of institutionally defined categories within the particular data element. This dictionary is a revised and edited version of a similar document developed by the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS), but the final section contains data elements for community variables which are not included in the NCHEMS document.
