Welch, Thomas A.
The second annual progress report of the Massachusetts Occupational Information System (MOIS) describes the activities and strategies of the MOIS in 1977. The report is divided into seven sections. The Administrative and Organizational Information section considers the highlights of the year, contains a chart illustrating the growth of the system, describes the board of directors, and contains the in-service training schedule for MOIS. Section 2, Information Development, lists the project's emphases for the year, describes its occupational information activities, and the results of its study of emerging industries. This section also describes the MOIS files for training programs, school information, and financial aid. Section 3, Delivery System, concentrates on the way in which MOIS disseminates information, focusing on computer centers, communication links, and user terminals. Section 4, User Services, is discussed in terms of objectives, end product, price, delivery, promotion and marketing (corporate identity, advertising, newsletter, trade shows, etc.), and publicity (audio/visual and print media). In section 5, Evaluation activities are explained in terms of data tables and a brief description of methodology. The final quarterly financial information report is included, along with a discussion of future plans. Appended are school topic codes, computer centers and multiplexer locations, an evaluation survey, and a user survey. (CT)
