Management Organization Systems Technique; A Management System for Higher Education--The Evaluation Sub-System.
Wayne County Community Coll., Detroit, MI.
This publication represents the fourth in a six-part series describing the Management Organization Systems Technique (MOST), which was developed at Wayne County Community College to determine the goals and objectives of the college and assist in their attainment and evaluation. The evaluation component, an essential part of the control function of a management structure, begins with data generated and processed in the information sub-system; data should be relevant, usable, and prepared in a format specifically designed for the type of evaluation to be done. These types include evaluation in the following areas: financial, institutional, organizational, instructional, student, and faculty and administrator performance. The output of the evaluation process are the finalized measures of effectiveness and efficiency in reaching goals, and a determination of the causes of deviation of institutional plans. The information is formulated to be of maximum use to management in intelligent re-planning and modification, and in the selection of the optimal alternatives. Evaluation of institutional operations and programs in the MOST system is on-going; along with these normal reporting functions, procedures have been developed for reporting on special projects.
