Updating of the Curricula for Office Administration and Secretarial Science. Final Report.
Changes are proposed for updating the curricula for office administration and secretarial science, the first being a name change for the department to Information/Word Processing or Administrative Sciences. Curricula (required courses and electives) are suggested for information/word processing--keyboarding specialist (one year certificate), accounting assistant (formerly accounting clerk), administrative assistant (1-year certificate and 2-year ATA degree), medical secretary, and clerical specialist/supervisor. Descriptions are then provided of courses and information/word processing units within courses. Emphasis is on identification of aspects that serve to make the students employable. These courses or units are included: keyboarding, machine transcription, filing and records management, electronic records management, information/word processing management, and office systems. Recommendations are made for hardware, including a shared logic system and stand-alone equipment. (YLB)
