High school records and reports
Metadata[+] Show full item record
School reports published annually are compiled from the records and reports made during the school year, and unless there is something of uniformity in the records and reports kept by the various schools, the reports published from them will not admit of comparison without much laborious reading, collecting of facts and reduction to the basis used in the school desiring to make the comparison. Naturally all this extra work should be eliminated if possible. Each school has to keep the facts required by the State Department, the Bureau of Education, and certain recognized educational institutions, and many schools have to keep the same facts for purposes of administrative control. The question arises then; cannot these schools keep uniform records for these purposes at least, using the same units of measurements and the same terminology in each case? One portion of this paper is an answer to this question, in that it presents and explains a uniform system of records and reports which will show the essential facts for the average school in this state and other states. It will also enter into a discussion of the importance and use of records and reports in school systems. Finally this report will go over the application of theory and these models to schools in Missouri.
