Summary

In the first part of this cost-analysis of National Science Foundation (NSF) institutes, the financing of the University of Wyoming Portal School Project is described and expenditures and outcomes of the program for the years 1971-1974 are estimated. The average cost of the project to the NSF was $1.30 per teacher participation hour. The cost of this project was compared to that of four other NSF programs. In the second part of this report, the cost-effectiveness of various NSF summer institutes for teachers was determined based on teacher and student gains in science test scores. The average cost of a summer institute for physics teachers was $58.50 per teacher percentage point gain in test score. The cost-effectiveness of another summer institute in physics is given on the basis of increase in student performance on three tests. (BB)
