The objective of this chapter is to describe the concepts, criteria, and ways to express effectiveness, as well as to provide examples of technical effectiveness in the different types of sports. The evaluation of technique effectiveness is influenced by the purpose of the evaluation, the characteristics of the technique, and the sport (e.g. purpose and structural aspects). From this conceptual basis, the criteria and ways to express effectiveness (i.e. types of calculations) are reviewed. After determining these aspects, examples of the ways that technical effectiveness is monitored in the different types of sport are presented.
