Effectiveness & Efficiency
The International Center has created a tool to assist districts and schools in their decision-making about programs, practices, and policies. The Effectiveness and Efficiency (E/E) Framework can be used to compare the relative effectiveness (student performance) and efficiency (cost) of strategies, tools, professional learning activities, organizational configurations, and procedural decisions.
All other things being equal, choices that are both Low Cost and High Performance are most desirable. Those that are High Cost and Low Performance should be critically examined. Everything else should be questioned and analyzed.
