To calculate the savings for the Maricopa Millions Project, the following steps are taken each Fall and Spring semester.
- Identify the number of sections of each of the 50 highest enrollment courses that use “No cost or Low Cost” materials (i.e. less than $40)
- Identify the number of sections of additional developmental education courses (not in the 50 highest enrollment courses) that use “No cost or Low Cost” materials (i.e. less than $40)
- Add the number of sections from #1 and #2 above and multiply by 20. Twenty students is a very conservative estimate for the average class size.
- Multiply the result from #3 above by $100. One hundred dollars is a commonly used dollar amount for average savings per student.
