From Student Follow-Up Responses to a Statewide Supply/Demand Analysis of Educational Programs.
The Texas Student Follow-up Information System (Tex-SIS) for comprehensive postsecondary follow-up and the supply/demand analysis work of the Texas 1202 Commission, Office of Postsecondary Education Planning, together may provide a valuable prototype for other states and perhaps even for a national system of data collection and analysis. Tex-SIS includes seven subsystems: students' educational intent, withdrawal follow-up, non-returning student follow-up, graduate follow-up, employer follow-up, adult and continuing education follow-up, and state follow-up. Each subsystem contains 14 different student follow-up questionnaires providing a means for collecting data to assist colleges and technical institutes in learning about the quality of their instructional programs and services. Tex-SIS data on graduates and non-persisting students, students' job titles once employed, and availability of jobs to program completers are being used to produce the occupational supply/demand analyses of the Texas 1202 Commission. Commission reports concentrate on employment opportunities by program, provide projections of postsecondary supply, and identify occupational openings for students making career decisions. (MB)
