This paper documents procedures for maintaining and updating the National Education Practices File, a program designed to identify needs in education and to develop a resource system for educators. Each feature is discussed with emphasis on major issues. Documentation of procedures and discussion of issues are based on experiences of the file design and pilot test phases. Background information is furnished to provide critical, conceptual, and technical reference points supporting recommendations. In presenting recommendations for the full implementation of the file, this document has been prepared as a self-contained procedures manual. The reader should also review documentation prepared for Phase 1 or Phase 2, Product 2.4 (Management and Implementation Plan for Future Expansion of the Practices File), which contain supplementary and complementary material. Other related materials are Informex (Product 2.6)--the content announcement sample--and the Descriptor Posting (Product 2.2)--the controlled vocabulary. In addition to a feature by feature delineation of background, issues, and recommendations, separate sections are presented on the organization for operating the file and on the pilot test operational costs.
