Capstone Roundtable — How to Produce Actionable Evidence from Program Evaluations Limited seats remain
Limited Capacity filling up

Many large-scale educational interventions are implemented without evidence to support their effectiveness. When this happens, program evaluations are conducted retrospectively using administrative data. However, post-implementation, educational leadership often have a stake in and preconceived notions about the effects of the intervention. For this reason, it can be difficult to sway leadership into action with estimates of general program effects. In this roundtable session, we will discuss case studies of program evaluations conducted in Palm Beach and lessons for working with leadership to establish action plans to ensure that findings are used to improve programs and policies.
