New staff from IPA, J-PAL, and EPoD are gathering this week in New Hampshire for a week of training in field methods.  We’ll learn about randomization methodology, data handling, statistics, and all the basics for field research boot camp. It’s also a great chance for staff from different offices to get to meet in person!


J-PAL’s Marc Shotland goes over different kinds of randomization, using school-based deworming to demonstrate phase-in methodology

Working on exercises

For the North American training, US-based staff came together with staff on their way to or from Chile, Mexico, Kenya, Paraguay, India, Mongolia, Peru, and Honduras.
