A Simplified Approach to Interinstitutional Cost Comparison. Planning for Higher Education; Vol. 3, No. 6:5/6, December 1974.
Beatty, George, Jr.; And Others
As more colleges and universities coordinate institutional research as a support system for long-range planning, new analytical tools are necessary. A system developed to project the effects of statewide policy alternatives may have wide applicability to other institutions and multi-institutional planning groups. The Instructional Cost Index procedure deals with only two levels of information. The first is the index that provides summary information, pointing out differences, for example, between indices of two institutions. The second level is the numerical values of the policy variables that explains the numerical differences of the indices. (MJM)
