A Three-Armed, Multi-Site Evaluation Design’s Potential for Within Study Comparison and Policy Learning
*Names in bold indicate Presenter
The study team developed a new method for leveraging these experimental results in an attempt to learn more about the nonexperimental counterpart analyses. Called Cross-Site Attributional Model Improved by Calibration to Within-Site Individual Randomization Findings (CAMIC), the method proposes a strategy for bias-reduction in nonexperimental analyses of the impact of a program’s structure and implementation on overall program impacts. This presentation will elaborate on the logic and performance (in simulations) of the CAMIC method, and it will also discuss more broadly the lessons from HPOG’s implementation of the “enhancement design” and potential future benefits of using this design in practice.
