MiSIS (Michigan Student Information System) Activities Manual.
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. The Michigan Student Information System (MiSIS) Activities Manual was designed to help college-level personnel make decisions regarding the usefulness of MiSIS questionnaires for a particular institutional environment. The first four sections of the manual provide introductory information on the objectives, assumptions, and development of MiSIS. Section V offers an overview of MiSIS, a system for the collection of local management information for program and institutional evaluation and improvement. Section VI examines each of the six subsystems of MiSIS: (1) student's educational intent; (2) withdrawal follow-up; (3) nonreturning student follow-up; (4) graduate follow-up; (5) employer follow-up; and (6) continuing education follow-up. For each subsystem, information is provided on the targeted population, the instrumentation, and the rationale for the development of the instrumentation. In addition, copies of the actual instruments are included. Section VII reviews the local uses of MiSIS data and describes the national and state laws that have reporting requirements for which MiSIS data may be used. Finally, section VIII offers information on ordering and/or printing MiSIS questionnaires for local use. (LL)
