Cost Effectiveness Evaluation of Instructional Technology: The Problems.
Levin, Henry M.
Problems that arise in applying cost effectiveness evaluations to instructional technologies are outlined in this paper, to explain that schools can draw on no available knowledge to determine whether the new instructional strategies will be more effective than traditional instructional approaches, once costs have been taken into account. The paper shows that most of the requirements for sound cost effectiveness analysis cannot be satisfied, given our present knowledge of the educational process. (SP)
