California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation.
This monograph contains four position papers and two conference papers from the Systemic Evaluation Project (fiscal year, 1984) on the methodological issues associated with applying a comprehensive information system in a secondary school setting. These papers represent work in progress at a suburban Los Angeles high school field test of systemic evaluation methods. The feasibility study is being carried out by the Center for the Study of Evaluation with the Laboratory in School and Community Relations.

Dorr-Bremme; (2) "The Use of Survey Data in Comprehensive Information Systems for Local School Improvement: Purposes, Practices, and Problems," by Leigh Burstein and Kenneth A. Sirotnik; (3) "Making Sense Out of Comprehensive School-Based Information Systems: Exploring Analyses and Reporting Methods for School Staff," by Sirotnik and Burstein; and (4) "Distributive Processing Issues in Education Information Systems," by Philip B. Ender. The conference papers are: (1) "Information Use in Local School Improvement: A Multilevel Perspective," by Burstein; and (2) "Using vs. Being Used by School Information Systems," by Sirotnik.
