The Student Accounting System. A Process for Tracking and Assessing the Flow of Students Through Vocational Education Programs.
Brennan, Peggy; Robinson, Gail
This manual presents the Student Accounting System, a system designed to track and assess the flow of students through vocational training programs at both the community college and secondary levels. The two major data files/source documents are first described--an inventory of programs and their courses and an inventory of all courses completed by each vocational education student and individual student characteristics. The Program Enrollment and Termination Report is also discussed, and conducting the system is considered. Most of the manual is devoted to step-by-step instructions for a suggested sequence of activities for manually completing the Program Enrollment and Termination Report. Instructions are divided into three major sections: (1) students involved in one vocational training program, (2) students involved in two or more vocational training programs, and (3) leavers and transfers from all vocational training programs. Appendices, amounting to approximately one-half of the manual, include the Vocational Education Program/Course Inventory Explanation and Instructional Manual, Student/Course Inventory Explanation and Instructional Manual, Summary Reports, Documentation for Computerization, and master Program/Course Inventory, Student/Course Inventory, and Summary Report forms.
