APPAM Institutional Member Forum - Leverage Points for Stronger, More Informative Impact Evaluations

09:00 AM - 02:00 PM

The first Institutional Forum of 2020 will be hosted by Westat on August 18, on Zoom

Researchers conducting rigorous evaluations of social programs continue to push the methodological frontier. At the same time, some fundamentals of strong social experiments are under-attended. This forum, hosted by APPAM and Westat, will provide the best current thinking in three foundational areas, defining and measuring the right counterfactual, appraising intervention benefits pre-launch, and assuring site readiness and intervention fidelity. Presenters will share ideas of universal relevance to random assignment evaluations illustrated through employment assistance studies.
