      Discusses problems in applying cost-benefit analysis to higher education, including selecting the correct productivity index, determining the discount rate for social consumption foregone, measuring individual and social costs and benefits, and defining the time horizon for educational investment returns. Contrasts cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis for higher education. The content of this book should admirably serve that purpose and should be required reading in all programs that prepare professional evaluators both inside and outside the field of education. The purpose of the book is to familiarize the reader with the uses, concepts, and applications of cost-analysis approaches to educational evaluations.

        Levin said that education has not benefited from this method as has the area of healthcare. There seems to be little research or literature on studies of cost-effective analysis in education. In order to open up the world of cost-effective analysis to a wider audience, Levin and McEwan illustrate its use with examples. Cost-benefit analysis seeks to identify interventions with net benefits greater than their costs (i.e., benefits − cost > 0), because such interventions are, by definition, worth adopting. In such analyses, costs are those expenses attributable to the intervention itself (e.g., the added cost of a new medication) and all other resources that.

      The cost of attending an institution of higher education includes not only tuition and fees, however, but also books and supplies, transportation, personal expenses and, sometimes, room and board. Although tuition and fees generally are substantially lower at public institutions than at private ones, the other student costs are about the same. These books have been reviewed by faculty from a variety of colleges and universities to assess their quality. These books can be downloaded for no cost, or printed at low cost. All textbooks are either used at multiple higher education institutions; or affiliated with an institution, scholarly society, or .
