Cost and Effectiveness of Computer Based Training.
Fletcher, J. D.
The methodology and results of cost-effectiveness evaluations of computer based instruction used in military training are discussed. Methodological issues center on decisions about what cost elements and what effectiveness measures should be included, and how they should be combined. Preliminary results suggest that, in general, computer based instruction costs about 28% less per unit of effectiveness than do conventional approaches to instruction. (8 references) (Author/GL)
