Topics in Policy Analysis (Half-Term) - Impact Evaluation Tools
This course presents tools for designing, implementing, and analyzing impact evaluations from a practitioner's perspective. It explores real-world problems and practical limitations frequently encountered in conducting evaluations and methodological tools to address them. Topics include program operation rules and their implications for design choice, process and standards for assessing evidence, challenges to randomization, sample size determination, complex sample design, and construction of analytic and nonresponse weights. Students will practice addressing these issues through a series of case studies and analytic exercises.
