    Abstract

    Today's schools are under pressure both to educate and to prepare students for a positive contribution to society and the economy. For many years, these aims have been only partially realized. Education uses philosophy and theory in the decision-making process, whereas the economy bases its decisions on cost-effectiveness. This article presents the Learning Curve model for the evaluation of learning programmes. This model takes cost-effectiveness, in addition to educational and psychological philosophy and theory, into consideration when evaluating the efficiency of learning programmes. In addition, the model provides for an improvement in learning programme evaluation by suggesting the use of computers, which add objectivity and precision to the process.
