The article begins from the basic concepts of efficiency and effectiveness in higher education. The author defines these terms, and their potential use, through a range of simple examples. Thereafter he develops an argument to suggest that it is important to distinguish between effectiveness and efficiency, and the measure for components of educational processes rather than attempt to identify global values which are descriptive of courses or departments. © 1985 Elsevier Science Publishers B.V.
