APPAM/Westat Institutional Member Forum - Leverage Points for Stronger, More Informative Impact Evaluations of Social Programs
Researchers conducting rigorous evaluations of social programs continue to push the methodological frontier—by trying to get “inside the black box” to discover what drives impacts, by working to generalize results from sample to nation, and by seeking to validate quasi-experimental approaches using experimental benchmarks. As these investigations proceed, some fundamentals of strong social experiments are under-attended.

This forum, hosted by APPAM and Westat, will feature panels that will tackle issues like counterfactuals, appraising intervention benefits pre-launch, and site readiness, and present ideas of universal relevance to random assignment evaluations illustrated through employment assistance studies.
