Automation and the Teacher Education Program.
Roy, Thomas M.
The use of the computer to assist in the administration of a teacher education program is described. Given the supply and demand problems in the teachers' job market, there is increasing pressure on teacher education programs to admit and retain only the better students, a task which involves many administrative duties. Performing them manually detracts from the time available for students; however, through the use of Mark IV language, it is possible to eliminate many of these tasks. The master file used for this application is a tape extract of the student master file, which is maintained by the admissions and records office in most colleges and universities. Utilizing the capability of the Mark IV language to maintain a master file with transaction data, the entire system could be maintained by the user department, independent of the professional programming staff.
