Abstract

This booklet is intended to set forth the current data processing procedures used by the Department of Public Instruction. It will be somewhat technical in nature, n~t only showing, in general, the type of report being treated, but also sho'!"ing the flow of work in the processing room, problems as they are worked, cards being currently used and the forms on which reports are printed by the use of this equipment. It is intended that it will be helpful to the members of our staff in understanding the IBM processes and the type of data available on IBM cards and that it also might be useful to other State Departments. It should be particularly helpful to those states who are not presently using this type of equipment and are just beginning to explore its many uses. In addition, it sets forth other types of equipment that the Department is 't using in the field of data processing and gives some indication of future explorations now being planned. The specific items of equipment being used are named and described in! (this booklet. There are several other comparable types of equipment on the market and the intent is not to put approval on any specific type. In preparing this revised edition we have brought the procedures described in the first edition up-to-date, included new areas that have been developed since the completion of the first edition and included the source documents used in each area.
