Chancellor's Office Management Information System: A Report.
In 1987, the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges (CCC) began implementation of the Management Information System (MIS) to improve its data collection and analysis capabilities by utilizing electronic mail communications systemwide. Specifically, the project seeks to replace paper copies of data generated for reporting requirements and serve as a resource for local research, examination of policy issues, and inquiries about the CCC. Phase I of the MIS was initiated in 1989-90, making data available concerning student profiles, course and program outcomes, matriculation, student services programs, high school performance reports, curriculum analysis, vocational education accountability, student high school of origin, and course data. To date, 57 of the 71 CCC districts have supplied all the MIS data files in phase I at least once. Phase II of the MIS project was begun in 1992, providing the CCC districts with grant money to enhance electronic mail access and make more data available via the MIS, including staff demographics, vocational education, basic skills limits, transfer and articulation, and college calendar information. In addition to the incentive grants, the Chancellor's Office has funded other projects to provide electronic access to frequently requested CCC documents. Appendixes provide information on districts reporting data as of August, 1993 and describe the Systemwide Communications Infrastructure designed by the California Community Colleges to aid the MIS project.
