RCT-YES: A New Tool to Support Lower-Cost Program Evaluation in Schools

Mon, April 11, 11:45am to 1:15pm, Marriott Marquis, Floor: Level Two, Marquis Salon 1

Session Type: Workshop


There is increasing interest for state and local agencies to conduct low-cost opportunistic experiments to test promising interventions and policies in their service areas. The increased availability of administrative data provide a rich data source for such evaluations. This workshop will introduce participants to RCT-YES, a free tool developed with the support of the Institute of Education Sciences at the U.S. Department of Education to estimate and report impacts for a wide range of designs used in education research. RCT-YES is based on a new design-based theory that conforms with the roots of experimental designs. The workshop will feature presentations by the ED officials and external researchers involved with developing this tool and using it with school districts.
