SCHEV Integrated Data Base: The First Step. The SCHEV Student Data Base. AIR 1993 Annual Forum Paper.
Keating, Jean C.
This paper reports on the implementation of the first two parts of an integrated data base designed to replace the fragmented surveys and data files of Virginia's institutions of higher education. The two parts being examined involve the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) Student Data Base and the Institutional Information File. The SCHEV Institutional Information File will provide institutional specific information used in checking the various data bases. The design of this file allows expansion of information through the addition of different types or groups of records. The 1992 file consists of three groups of records: institutional specific information, one per institution; multiple records per institution, one record per student level per institution; and multiple records per institution, one record per degree per degree level per institution. A file reflecting all courses taught during a year at each institution is in the process of being added to the database. The SCHEV Student Data Base will consist of five data files: (1) fall headcount, (2) annual course enrollment, (3) financial aid, (4) degrees conferred, and (5) admission. First, the report describes each part's data file design, followed by a section describing the implementation phases for 1992 through 1994. It concludes with a progress update. (GLR)
