Denton, Jon J.; Smith, Nick L.
This report describes the results of a cost-effectiveness comparison of the alternative programs (education and non-education majors) available at Texas A&M University for students seeking certification as secondary education teachers. The two alternative programs leading to secondary teacher certification, the major costs associated with the two alternatives, the effects data from previous studies of the two alternatives, integration of the costs with the effects information, and a summary of the major findings with a consideration of their implications are discussed. The appendices include cost data summary tables, a checklist of cost categories, and a checklist of cost-effectiveness steps. (PN)
