Elements and Functions of an Effective Information System SLP

Organize the SLP research paper to contain four sections. Use the following outline (with headings for each module) as indicated:

  • Introduction (2 or 3 paragraphs)
  • Section 1 (Mod 1) – Information System (IS) in Education
  • Section 2 (Mod 2) – External Factors
  • Section 3 (Mod 3) – Teacher Salaries
  • Section 4 (Mod 4) – E-Services and Conclusion
  • Reference list

THE REFERENCE LIST MUST BE FORMATTED PROPERLY IN APA FORMAT AND STYLE. THIS APPLIES TO ALL MODULES.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Each Module of the SLP project should be a minimum of 2-3 pages in length, not including cover sheet and reference list.

Your research paper should include:

  • Background information about information systems and e-services in education
  • External factors that impact the effectiveness of e-services offered by State Boards of Education
  • A comparison of teacher salaries nationally as related to teacher salaries in the state you have chosen to review
  • The e-services your chosen state Board of Education currently offers on its website
  • Your recommendations for additional and/or revised e-services that should be offered on your chosen State Education website.

Submitting your Session Long Project

You must submit each SLP module according to the course submission deadlines.

In Module 4, combine all prior SLP module sections and the new section, as well as the conclusion and reference list, into a final document.

Each module of the SLP is individually graded and includes specifically related feedback. The final collated (or “combined”) document receives a grade in Module 4.

Below is an explanation for each module assignment of the Session Long Project:

Module 1: Information Systems (IS) in Education

Conduct an initial literature review and consider which factors make an information system effective or ineffective. Critically analyze information to determine the components of a typical information system, and compose a 2 – 3 page essay, discussing these issues as related to e-services that state Boards of Education define on their websites.

In effective information systems, you should consider the following information:

  • Databases that are useful in education forums
    • What information is included in this state’s education database? What makes it useful, or what information should be included to make it useful? Teacher’s notes on students, student grades, class syllabi are some examples of information to include in an educational database.
  • Database that is secure:
    • Consider the type of security the database provides, who can access the database, how user-friendly is it easy to navigate.

These are all just a few examples; use your own judgment in writing your SLP. Feel free to use creative thinking but not just the above examples.

Remember to write an “introduction” for your research paper. In the Introduction, define the topics you will discuss.

NOTE: Cite references to validate your research.
