A Cost-Analytic Approach to Determining Chapter 1 Program Impact: Some Preliminary Findings.
Yap, Kim Onn
The paper reports an attempt to evaluate instructional practices in compensatory education by looking at both costs and effects associated with the practices. The study covered some 300 Chapter l projects over a three-year period, focusing on project settings and instructional approaches used in the projects. Results of the study indicated that the pull-out setting produced the highest achievement gains and the most favorable cost-effectiveness ratio. A prescribed instructional system, supplemented by a miscellany of other materials, produced the highest achievement gains and the most favorable cost-effectiveness ratio. The cost information generated clearly provides a better basis for determining the relative worth of the various instructional settings and approaches used in compensatory education. (Author)
