IPA and J-PAL Africa Impact Evaluation Course, 2015
This page is a place where participants can find a variety of resources leading up to, during, and after the IPA Zambia and J-PAL Africa Impact Evaluation Course in Lusaka, Zambia. It will contain information on course logistics, the course schedule, course lectures, case studies, group exercises, and other pertinent readings.
Who Should Attend
Members of the Government, development practitioners, and researchers from Zambian institutions are invited to attend a four-day workshop, which will highlight the importance of impact evaluations and help develop the skills needed to understand randomised evaluations.
The course will consist of two streams: the researcher stream and the policymaker stream. Both streams will have the same core. The core of the course will be content on key components of randomised evaluations. This will include, why evaluation is important, different kinds of impact evaluation, the benefits of randomization, as well as the threats to randomisation. The researcher stream will have supplementary material on the more technical aspects of evaluations, such as power calculations. The policymaker stream will have supplementary material on identifying good evidence and how to use evidence in policy making.
