Evaluating the Efficiency of Higher Education

Abstract: In searching for an appropriate way for evaluating performance of higher education the author found a contradiction, which makes it impossible to create a unified performance evaluation system for higher education. This contradiction reflects the dual nature of some total indicators of higher education institutions’ work, where the same indicator can be considered as an input and as an output. This dualism explains the lack of a unified approach to selection of the indicators to evaluate the efficiency of higher education. The study found the Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) as the most appropriate methods for performance evaluation of higher education under specific conditions.
