Impact Evaluation of Social Programs from Massachusetts Institute of Technology
This course introduces randomized (or experimental) impact evaluations as a tool to test and improve the effectiveness of social programs and policies.
The course will provide you with the fundamental concepts to understand what randomized impact evaluations consist of, why they are important, how they are designed and implemented, and how to use their results.
Combining theoretical classes and case studies based on real evaluations, the course pays attention to aspects such as the virtues of experimental methodology, the different possible randomization designs and what situations can put the internal validity of an experiment at risk.
