Summary

In this paper the authors argue that the decision structures of educational institutions are multi-level, multi-decision-maker hierarchies which can be described and analyzed in decision theoretic terms and that these multi-levels, multi-decision-maker hierarchies can be reduced to equivalent one-level, one-decision-maker formulations, which can be solved either analytically or numerically by the techniques presented. Illustrative examples are given which identify and then solve for a set of optional resource allocation and policy decisions. The computer program used for the problem and the input data specifications are included in an appendix. A 24-item bibliography is included. (Author)
