J-PAL/CLEAR South Asia is organising a five-day course on ‘Evaluating social programmes’, its annual executive education course. This course gives participants a thorough understanding of why and when researchers and policymakers choose to conduct randomised evaluations and how they are designed for a real-world setting. It reviews the benefits and methods of randomisation, how to choose an appropriate sample size, and common threats to the validity of an experiment. The course also covers the importance of a needs assessment, the theory of change, and how to measure outcomes effectively—tools that are critical for all programme evaluations.
