Concrete tools to improve actionable impact evaluation practices

This workshop provides participants with concrete tools to improve actionable impact evaluation practices at their organisation, tailored to Civic Technology interventions.

J-PAL staff explain the pros and cons of different methods of impact evaluation, from randomised evaluation to lab-in-the-field and quasi-experimental methods, then lead small group exercises to enable participants to begin planning their own evaluation.

Evaluating the impacts of voter information campaigns

As the line between fact and fiction in politics becomes increasingly blurred, the need for effective strategies to convey facts to voters and hold elected leaders accountable is more pressing than ever before.

Researchers and J-PAL staff will present case studies of information campaigns and evaluation approaches, as well as insights from multiple randomised evaluations testing similar approaches.
