For Writing A Paper On The Current State And Future Directions For Impact Evaluation

This grant will support one of three papers that the Global Development and Population Program is commissioning about the role of impact evaluations in informing development policy and programming. The Rural Education Action Program (REAP) at Stanford University conducts experimental and quasi-experimental impact evaluations in the education sector in rural China, and this paper will capture lessons from the organization’s experience working closely with government officials to revise policy and programs based on findings from evaluations. Together, the three papers will both inform the field of impact evaluation, as well as the strategy development for the Program's Evidence-Informed Policymaking sub-component.
