Abstract : A description is given of a proposed Educational Information System (EIS) which: (1) Allows for more effective administrative operations in such areas as accounting and fiscal matters, student scheduling, inventory control, purchasing, and long-range forecasting of goals and needs; (2) Assists school trustees, administrators, and teachers in the economics of academic decisionmaking; (3) Makes student and teacher performance data readily available for analysis of teacher effectiveness and student progress, and thus improves the school's ability to evaluate educational policy; (4) Provides the school with new sources of information for assessing what is valuable and essential within its educational program.
