Development of Procedures to Implement EOPS Cost Effectiveness Standards Model and Continued Evaluation of These Procedures by Selected Community Colleges during the 1974-75 Academic Year. EOPS Special Project 74-101.
Aughinbaugh, Lorine A.; And Others
Four products were developed during the second year of the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) cost effectiveness study for California community colleges. This project report presents: (1) a revised cost analysis form for state-level reporting of institutional program effectiveness data and per-student costs by EOPS program category (recruitment, counseling, financial aid, etc.); (2) a formula for determining cost effectiveness of individual college EOPS programs in which effectiveness ratios for first-time and continuing EOPS students are calculated from student retention, ability, unit completion, and goal (degree) completion data; (3) a proposed State Allocation Formula for EOPS funds, which combines the resulting cost effectiveness ratios of individual college EOPS programs with a need factor, determined by the discrepancy between the potential pool of EOPS students in the college's service area and actual number of EOPS students served, the college's requested EOPS service level, and area cost of living; and (4) an additional revised institutional data reporting form. Recommendations are made for the implementation of the cost effectiveness formula and its incorporation into EOPS master planning and program development. Appended to the project report are EOPS program and per-student costs by category for the 11 colleges involved in the study and a hypothetical calculation for EOPS program allocations. (BB)
