EnrollForecast for Excel: K-12 Enrollment Forecasting Program. Software & User's Guide. [Computer Diskette].
Smith, Curtis A.
"EnrollForecast for Excel" will generate a 5-year forecast of K-12 student enrollment. It will also work for any combination of grades between kindergarten and twelth. The forecasts can be printed as either a table or a graph. The user must provide birth history (only if forecasting kindergarten) and enrollment history information. The user also provides the key forecast assumptions under the guidance of the program, thereby maintaining considerable control over the forecasts. EnrollForecast for Excel software and the 50-page User's Guide are written with the assumption that the user has a basic proficiency in using the "Microsoft Excel" spreadsheet. "Basic" means that one can open and save files, navigate around the workbook and worksheet, make proper entries, and print desired sections of worksheets. EnrollForecast for Excel is a Microsoft Excel workbook. It will run on any Windows-platform computer that has Microsoft Excel version 5.0 (or later) installed. It will also run on a Macintosh with Excel 98 for Macintosh installed. Excel is a spreadsheet program that is commonly part of the Microsoft Office package. (DFR)
