Program Evaluation in Cost Benefit Terms.
Tanner, C. Kenneth
This paper advances a model, called the expected opportunity loss model, for curriculum evaluation. This decision-making technique utilizes subjective data by ranking courses according to their expected contributions to the primary objective of the total program. The model also utilizes objective data in the form of component costs, and differs from traditional cost-effectiveness models in that it places less emphasis on the cost components. The purposes of the decision model are (1) to formulate alternatives for decision making under uncertainty, and (2) to appraise the probable or conditional opportunity loss. The minimum loss is the optimum decision. (DE)
