MOOCs and Toolkits
Applied Impact Evaluation is a massive open online course (MOOC) developed by CEGA, and is designed for applied researchers interested in learning about modern impact evaluation techniques and improving their capacity to apply these skills in the field. The course covers conceptual and empirical issues related to the identification and estimation of causal effects in the context of the evaluation of social programs and public policies, and an important empirical portion is devoted to the implementation of these techniques in Stata.
A hands-on guide on how to design and implement impact evaluations from the World Bank Human Development Network. The toolkit includes best practices for each stage of the impact evaluation cycle, such as how to choose evaluation questions, build a team, design an evaluation, and collect and analyze data, along with over 50 tools (including terms of reference for team members and survey firms, household and facility questionnaires, data-entry programs, and materials for training enumerators and supervising field work).
