I had the pleasure to teach the EMPA class Program Evaluation with Professor Samantha MacBride in Spring 2024. The goal of the class is to enable the students to do “sensible evaluation at reasonable costs”. Below is the teaching material for the class.



Case studies

  • Case 1: Northwest Housing Alternatives
  • Case 2: Jobs Plus in NYC
  • Case 3: ARPA-E
  • Case 4: NYC Gifted & Talented Program
  • Case 5: CBA of EPA Clean Air Act
