dc.description.abstractThe objective of this study was to determine the degree of effectiveness and efficiency that can be obtained by an academic department operating with a graduate wok-study program as compared to that of the same department operating without such program. Because of the comprehensive nature of this study, its scope was limited to only one department of the Graduate College of Texas A&M University. The Department of Educational Administration was selected and its current certificate programs were investigated, along with two alternative programs. The research was structured upon a cost-effectiveness model especially developed for determining the effectiveness and efficiency of departmental programs. Its operation was described in such a manner as to make its application suitable to any program of a department or easily adaptable to analyzing the entire curriculum of a department. A "decision-function" was given to the model that allowed a department administrator to base his decision upon two phases of the analysis, a so-called commensurable phase and an incommensurable phase. Since several alternatives are usually included in an analysis, a comprehensive method was developed for each phase in order to bring together the results of the cost-effectiveness study for easy comparison by the decision-maker. In addition, the incommensurable phase was also designed to be used as a validity check on the outcome of the commensurable phase.en
