It proceeds to issues in measuring educational effectiveness using a common metric across : Henry M. Levin, Clive R. Belfield. Cost-effectiveness analysis is an evaluation tool that is designed to assist in choosing among alternative courses of action or policies when resources are limited.

Most educational decisions face constraints in the availability of budgetary and other resources.

This chapter discusses the cost effectiveness analysis in education. It is a technique for measuring the relationship between the total inputs, or costs, of a project or activity, and its outputs or objectives.

Both costs and effectiveness must be quantified, but it is not necessary to measure them in monetary terms. Whereas in cost-effectiveness analysis the outputs of education can be measured in terms of scores in cognitive and noncognitive achievement tests, examination results, or some other measure of educational quality, in the case of cost-benefit analysis benefits, as well as costs, are measured in monetary terms.
