Cost-Effectiveness Analysis for Educational Planning.
Carpenter, Margaret B.; Haggart, Sue A.
Cost-effectiveness is both a powerful and an often misused technique for analysis. In order to help the educational planner with his problems in achieving a more effective use of educational resources, this paper proposed a method of analysis which is called resource effectiveness. In order for a program to be evaluated properly, both the resource-oriented and effectiveness-oriented problems must be considered. If both these factors are correctly evaluated and the structure of the system is considered, the result will be an estimated measure of resource requirements, costs, and ranked aspects of effectiveness projected over the time period of interest for each program and for alternative futures.
