ELP 654 - Research Methods IV Program Evaluation

Credits 3
Seminar / 3 hours per week
Students will analyze how to measure the effect of a program. They will learn about multimethods approaches (ethnographic methods; case studies; experimental and quasi-experimental) and about some new econometric methods. Students will be able to understand an evaluation study in great detail and form a well-grounded critical judgment about its value. Complemented with appropriate technical background or assistance, they will learn how to design, develop, and implement an evaluation study best suited for a program and the practical constraints at hand.
