Abstract

Using a stochastic frontier approach this paper evaluates the effects of substantial changes in the teaching material on students' learning efficiency. The results indicate that the main effects of the re-organization on the learning efficiency was a decreasing importance of students' attendance and of continuous preparation of the material.
