Development programs, CSR initiatives and policies are typically designed to change outcomes, for example, to raise incomes, to improve learning, or to reduce illness. Whether or not these changes are actually achieved, is a crucial public policy question, but one that has not been often examined. More commonly, program managers and policy makers focus on controlling and measuring the inputs and immediate outputs of a program rather than on assessing whether programs have achieved their intended goals of improving well-being.
The fundamental challenge for program evaluation is to establish a causal link between interventions and outcomes. Impact evaluation is increasingly recognized as an important part of the evaluation toolkit. The primary objective of the training program is to introduce participants to major quasi-experimental techniques and develop research skills to use them.
The workshop fee is INR 18,000 per student (plus applicable service tax) which includes welcome registration kit, accommodation in the IRMA student hostel and lunch and dinner in the student mess. A/C accommodation is available on a first-cum-first-served basis for approximately 30 participants. Additional charges for the same would be INR 4,500. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the workshop.
