Abstract:

The purpose of this cost-effectiveness specification is to facilitate the purchase, monitor, and evaluation of computer-based training systems. This standardized structure for deriving and communicating training system costs and effectiveness is presented in three volumes, corresponding to the life cycle of a computer-based training system 1 development, 2 procurement, and 3 operation and maintenance. The cost methodology focuses on identifying and quantifying total inputs required by the system over its life cycle. Effectiveness dimensions include objectives-based achievement and time measures for within course and end-of-course criteria. Other measures, such as attrition rates, instructor ratings, and attitude scales, are also discussed. Author
