Three tools are presented in separate sections. Part I on the cost accounting tool for identifying, categorizing, and calculating resources needed to support the operations of the program includes discussion of cost estimating relationships, sources of cost data, a cost data bank, estimating techniques, and organization of system costs. Part II on the cost-effectiveness tool for maximizing system effectiveness while minimizing costs includes discussion of the systems approach, features of the cost-effectiveness system, and the cost-effectiveness concept (with a diagram). Part III on the cost-benefit tool, a means of comparing program costs and program benefits, discusses the individual and societal cost-benefit ratios. Included is a 24-item reference list. This document and SP 002 155-SP 002 180 comprise the appendixes for the ComField Model Teacher Education Program Specifications in SP 002 154. (JS)
