A Cost Effectiveness Model for the Evaluation of Kansas Area Vocational-Technical School Programs.
Mintz, Noel O.
The purpose of the study was to ascertain what evaluation practices were being utilized for vocational programs and also to apply a cost-effectiveness model to four program areas offered in Kansas area vocational-technical (VT) schools. Cost and benefit data for the study were obtained from the Kansas State Department of Education, Vocational Division, Topeka. On the basis of multiple regression analysis, annual post-secondary vocational training costs in Kansas area VT schools in any of the four program areas were investigated (agriculture, business, health, and trade and industrial occupations). The annual earnings difference between post-secondary and secondary graduates of Kansas area VT schools was $983. Investments in post-secondary vocational programs were highly desirable in all four program areas, by utilizing both the benefits and costs of vocational programs more economically feasible decisions could be made, and considerations other than investment criteria may be taken into account by the decision maker.
