Evaluation Cafe: October 24th, 2008
Contemporary thinking about causal inference in educational research and evaluation, largely centered around randomized controlled trials (RCTs), has been a point of high priority as well as contention. In this Café, Cook and Scriven will discuss their recent thinking about causation, in general, as well as recent methodological developments and alternatives to RCTs for cause‐probing investigations in educational and other settings, more specifically.
