Redundancy Checking Thesaurus. Improved Systems for Managing the Control of Paperwork.
Horne, Susan H.; And Others
This document contains classification schedules and a thesaurus of terms for describing federal data collection activities for education. The terms in the classification schedules are grouped and classified hierarchically into 12 major categories: people; students; employees; organizations; education organization functions; public administration functions; federal education assistance programs; organization finances; physical resources; outcomes of education; time periods; and educational subject matter. The schedules serve four functions: (1) they provide a conceptual framework for describing and classifying education terminology and education data collection; (2) they provide terms used to describe survey instruments; (3) they provide the language used to formulate queries for retrieving information from the Redundancy Checking System database; and (4) they provide the classification structure for the glossary. A guide to the correct and consistent usage of classification schedule terms, the thesaurus will be used primarily by those indexing survey instruments for the Redundancy Checking database and those formulating queries at the retrieval stage of the Redundancy Checking System. The thesaurus lists both controlled vocabulary terms and lead-in terms--words and phrases that might occur in survey instruments. All terms are listed alphabetically. An overview, description, and recommendations for use and update are provided for both the classification schedules and the thesaurus. (THC)
