Abstract

This paper tries to establish a comparison between the problems IT people are having, at the end of this century, to evaluate the return on the investment in IT, and the difficulties faced by those who have been trying to find consistent ways of assessing the benefits of formal education since the 60's. Our objective was to check if the problems in assessing investments in the area of education were the same, or similar to those in the IT area. If that was the case, there would be room for future studies trying to determine if the Education Economics could, somehow, contribute to the development of better evaluation tools for investments in IT.
