The workshop aims to cope with a crucial requirement for incorporating impact evaluation (IE) contained program design: a practical and theoretical information of impact evaluation techniques to allow alternative of ideal methodologies, which could has an extensive appraisal ensuing evidence. After the training the participants can provide qualitative and quantitative analysis methods for the impact evaluation after which provide them an expertise within the crucial comprehension of all the roles they're competent to accomplish in the format and analysis of the public policy. The employees tackle the issues of mastering STATA, NVIVO and certainly the intricacies of analysis research models and also econometric methods.
