Concentration: Social and Behavioral Science
Not all policies or programs "work" and a significant amount of money is spent to evaluate them. This course will teach you the tools used to determine whether programs and policies achieve their objectives. This course focuses on the design and implementation of formative and summative evaluations of programs and policies including assessment of fidelity to a model and assessment of impact. This short course is interactive, with a mix of lecture and student led discussion to provide examples and applications of course concepts.
