Any educational intervention has an outcome and a cost. A measure of the cost effectiveness is obtained by measuring costs against outcomes.

Analysing cost effectiveness of an intervention can involve evaluating various options, for example:
o reviewing a number of alternatives all of which are within the realm of cost feasibility;
o considering which supplemental programs ought to be used to improve an educational outcome;
o trying to identify which program has the best average outcome per student relative to the per-student cost.
