Texas State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee Data. Feedback. Pub. No. 97.23.
Patrick, Ertha S.
The Texas Education Agency provided statewide Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) data to the Texas State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (TSOICC) in May 1998 to determine employment information and college enrollment for 1996-97 senior students. TSOICC used the Automated Student and Adult Learner Follow-up System, a process that uses electronic linkages to determine enrollment in Texas public universities, types of employment, and quarterly wage for the 1996-97 senior cohort. TSOICC was provided PEIMS data for 3,074 1996-97 graduates and seniors exiting prior to completion of graduation requirements. TSOICC aggregated the statewide results and produced a "report card" on the 1996-97 exit cohort. This report is based on further analysis of Austin Independent School District (AISD) data from the PEIMs, Unemployment Insurance records, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's master enrollment records to acquaint program personnel and decision makers with the followup data and to demonstrate the data's potential. It is recommended that the AISD continue to use TSOICC data to follow up former students and determine postsecondary enrollments. (SLD)
