dc.description.abstract This report outlines the establishment of a computerized data base in Seven Persons School using the Appleworks program. This data base is used primarily by the school office staff to store basic demographic data for each student. The review of literature examines the use of microcomputers in a variety of data management tasks, specifically those related to the storage and processing of demographic data in a small to medium-sized school. The project involves the training of school staff in the operation of Appleworks, and the compilation of various lists of demographic data into one computerized data base. Staff members are surveyed to determine the use being made of the data base and to determine if a data base containing academic records might also be warranted. The results indicate that the principal and teaching staff are very much in favour of a student demographic data base, but do not use the data base themselves. Rather, they rely on the school secretary to Ilse this tool to access student information in an increasingly efficient manner. The prospect of a larger data base which would include both demographic and academic information requires further study, and a major financial committment by the local school board. en
