The Cost Analysis of Instructional Development: Some Managerial Considerations.
Rogers, Donald D.
The ability to develop lower unit cost instruction requires the ability to both determine the unit cost of current instruction and to predict with some degree of accuracy the unit cost of the proposed instruction. From the managerial viewpoint the cost of instruction can be determined by using basic design models which reflect the actual situation. By applying Tracey's Project MINERVA Model with its clearly described five instructional stages, the manager can cross reference each of the stages against his four general cost categories: salaries; supplies and materials; space; equipment. Implementation of this type of cost analysis will enable the manager to predict the cost of future projects, justify organizational changes, facilitate the formulation of institutional budgets and grant proposals, and testify to support needed from separate entities (federal government, institution, etc.). The author presents a simulated cost study with tabular summarization of the data. (MC)
