The Michigan Student Information System (MiSIS) is the student flow component, of the Michigan Community College Occupational Education Evaluation System (MCCOEES), a comprehensive state-wide system for evaluating occupational education. It was developed by the Michigan community college system as a systematic and valid method of collecting information on a voluntary basis for statewide and local educational decision making. MiSIS is composed of the following six subsystems, each with its own data collection instruments and procedures: (1) student's educational intent; (2) student withdrawal follow-up; (3) nonreturning student follow-up; (4) graduate follow-up; (5) employer follow-up; and (6) continuing education follow-up. Although MiSIS is not a reporting system, several of the MiSIS instruments comply with Vocational Education Data System reporting requirements and are related to state and national activities (e.g., Veteran's Administration follow-up, and Guaranteed Student Loan Program follow-up information). In addition, MiSIS data can be used locally in a variety of ways, e.g., in career counseling, identifying service needs, institutional planning, student recruitment, public relations, curriculum development, cost effectiveness studies, and communication with accreditation teams. MiSIS reflects a local and statewide teamwork approach to producing educational information in which the resources to support the system are provided at both the state and local levels. (LL)
