Preliminary Cost-Effectiveness Considerations for UMA/SUN. Working Paper No. 4 [and] Executive Summary No. 4.
Sell, G. Roger
In this working paper and executive summary, focus is on procedures to be used in cost-effectiveness studies of the University of Mid-America/State University of Nebraska (UMA/SUN) delivery system of open learning. Two major questions are addressed: Should cost-effectiveness studies be undertaken, and if so, what kind of studies? The planning process and literature review was undertaken to identify cost-effectiveness analysis issues pertinent to UMA/SUN and open learning, and four major papers were generated. They are included in this report: (1) "Thoughts on Learning Effectiveness Comparison Studies," by Dennis D. Gooler; (2) "Economic Analysis of the UMA/SUN Open Learning System," by Philip and Keith Lumsden; (3) "A Review of the Context of Cost Analysis," by Philip Doughty and Albert Beilby; and (4) "Cost-Effectiveness Analysis Alternatives for Open Learning Programs," by Philip Doughty. A proposed schedule for cost-effectiveness studies over a five-year developmental period follows a description of planned data collection activities for the program evaluation. (LBH)
