Handbook of Cumulative Records: A Report of the National Committee on Cumulative Records. Bulletin, 1944, No. 5
US Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
The National Committee on Cumulative Records was set the task of developing a handbook to show the place of the cumulative record in administration, instructional activities, and pupil personnel work of schools. Committee members were asked to set down good practices using cumulative records both from the standpoint of actual known practices in schools and from pertinent results obtained from research. The U.S. Office of Education made a Nation-wide survey of the types of cumulative record systems used, with the use of cumulative records. The results of this national survey and the general recommendations regarding the items which school systems might find useful in their cumulative records are given in chapter I. The general principles which justify the keeping of cumulative records are discussed in chapter II. Chapter III tells of the specific uses of cumulative records for the elementary school, and, similarly, chapter IV does this for the high school. Chapter V deals with the problem of the use of test scores and explores the relation between the test program and the cumulative record. Chapter VI takes up the important area of reading and shows how the records in this subject may be used to great advantage in the instructional program as well as in educational guidance. The use of records in advising with parents is discussed in chapter VII. Chapter VIII deals with the follow-up of students leaving school or graduating from school, a field that has been inadequately developed. Records of the placement of students in jobs are discussed in chapter IX. Chapter X contains descriptions of two types of unique uses of cumulative records. Illustrations of Cumulative Record Forms are appended. A bibliography is included. (Contains 22 figures and 12 tables.) Individual chapters contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
