Recently, the Institute of Education Sciences and the National Center on Education Research awarded the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University a three-year grant for a summer institute on randomized field trials. The institute will focus on the design, implementation, and analysis of cluster- randomized experiments. In doing so, IES hopes to increase the national capacity to develop and conduct rigorous evaluations of the effectiveness of education interventions.
The workshops are co-organized by Larry Hedges, Board of Trustees Professor in Social Policy and Statistics, and two colleagues from Vanderbilt University, Mark Lipsey, Director of the Center for Evaluation Research and Methodology and Senior Research Associate, and David Cordray, Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Psychology.
