A Model for Determining Costs of School Programs.
MacNab, G. L.
A model is outlined that generates program costs and indicates the relative contribution of the various dimensions of a program to costs. The model says that there is no direct relationship between costs and learning, but that program (and school) parameters intervene. Some of these parameters have costs associated with them, but these are not necessarily salient in predicting learning differences. The model, still incomplete, indicates relationships among cost-related parameters and shows how program costs may be generated or predicted from them. (Author)
