A COST-EFFECTIVENESS MODEL FOR THE ANALYSIS OF TITLE I ESEA PROJECT PROPOSALS, PART I-VII.
ABT, CLARK C.
SEVEN SEPARATE REPORTS DESCRIBE AN OVERVIEW OF A COST-EFFECTIVENESS MODEL AND FIVE SUBMODELS FOR EVALUATING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY ACT TITLE I PROPOSALS. THE DESIGN FOR THE MODEL ATTEMPTS A QUANTITATIVE DESCRIPTION OF EDUCATION SYSTEMS WHICH MAY BE PROGRAMED AS A COMPUTER SIMULATION TO INDICATE THE IMPACT OF A TITLE I PROJECT ON THE SCHOOL, THE STUDENTS, AND THE COMMUNITY. THE OVERALL COST-EFFECTIVENESS MODEL FOCUSES ON CHANGES IN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT, ATTITUDINAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS INFLUENCING ACHIEVEMENT, AND SOCIAL BEHAVIORS AND COMMUNITY IMPACTS OF IMPROVED ACHIEVEMENT IN THE DISADVANTAGED. THE FIVE SUBMODELS COMPRISING THE OVERALL MODEL ARE--(1) SCHOOL, AND (2) INSTRUCTIONAL PROCESS, (3) COMMUNITY INTERACTIONS, (4) COSTS, AND (5) COST-EFFECTIVENESS. THE SCHOOL SUBMODEL REPRESENTS THE PROCESS IN WHICH FOUR STUDENT TYPES (WHITE AND NONWHITE WITH FAMILY INCOMES ABOVE AND BELOW $2,000) AND EDUCATION RESOURCES (TEACHERS, EQUIPMENT, ETC.) ARE CONVERTED INTO BETTER-EDUCATED INDIVIDUALS. THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROCESS SUBMODEL INDICATES THE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND ATTITUDE CHANGES RESULTING FROM TITLE I PROGRAMS. THE COMMUNITY INTERACTIONS SUBMODEL ESTIMATES THE IMPACT ON SEVEN COMMUNITY VARIABLES OF CHANGES IN THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM DUE TO TITLE I PROGRAMS. THE COST SUBMODEL ACCOUNTS FOR BOTH THE DIRECT AND INDIRECT COSTS OF TITLE I PROGRAMS. THE EFFECTIVENESS SUBMODEL ANALYZES THE OUTPUT OF THE RESULTS OF THE OTHER SUBMODELS. ONE OF THESE SEVEN REPORTS DESCRIBES THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION COST-EFFECTIVENESS SIMULATION. (JL)
