Description:
How do we best answer these questions about the impacts and effectiveness of social programs? There has been a growing call for evidence obtained from evaluations that are based on randomized experiments. This chapter provides guidelines for deciding when to use a randomized experiment, designing such studies, and working with program staff to put experiments in place and maintain them so that unbiased estimates of the effectiveness of educational and social programs can be obtained.
