Our friends at J-PAL Global are now offering a free online course, J-PAL 101x: Evaluating Social Programs. This massive open online course (MOOC) is offered through the edX platform and explains why evaluations matter and how they can be used to rigorously measure the social impact of development programs. Through lectures by J-PAL affiliates from top universities, case studies, and other exercises, this practical course will provide a thorough understanding of randomized evaluations, with pragmatic step-by-step training for conducting one’s own evaluation. The course begins on May 2, 2016. Learn more about the course and register here.
