IES Methods Training

In 2015, the Institute of Education Sciences of the U.S. Department of Education provided funding to CBCSE for an IES Methods Training Program in Cost-Effectiveness and Benefit-Cost Analysis. This program was designed for researchers and evaluators, enabling them to apply methods of economic evaluation to educational policy issues. Since the program began, over 130 U.S. researchers have received training at sites across the country. Videos are publicly available from the last training session for researchers via the link below. 

CBCSE is offering a new IES Methods Training Program in Economic Evaluation for state and local education employees. This new training focuses on the specific needs of education offices. The 3-day training will be offered in April 2018. Similar to the original course, this course will be led by Professors Henry Levin, Clive Belfield, Brooks Bowden, and Robert Shand.
