This program of instruction and various instructional materials for a secondary-postsecondary level course for programmer/analysts is one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting. The eight-week, three-section course is designed to provide the skill to program electronic computers structured in COBOL and to code job streams using IBM, DOS, JCL, and utility programs. The program of instruction suggests a time schedule and gives the learning objective and reference(s) for each topic. Section 1, Data Representation, consists of a programmed text covering the binary, octal, and lexadecimal systems. Section 2, Basic COBOL Programming, contains a text and problem exercises with some answers. Topic areas include processing and updating a sequential file, producing an edited report and a report with calculations, processing external and internal tables, and debugging syntax errors. Section 3, Operating Systems, includes a text and programmed text. It focuses on disk operating systems (DOS) organization and operation. Specific topics include coding DOS Job Streams, DOS Librarian Programs, and DOS Utilities and Sorts. (YLB)
