Section Description

This five-week course will provide an introduction to randomized field experiments primarily in the context of international development. The course will consider the basic methodology of field experiments, including randomization, intervention, measurement, and inference with an emphasis on application of these ideas to a research question of interest. A project will be required and will entail the identification of a research question, the development of a theoretical argument to address the question, and the design of an experiment that applies the methodology to provide an answer.

This course is expected to be taught in five hour segments during the spring 2013 semester on April 6, April 16, and May 3.
