A Search for Alternatives to Random Assignment to Treatment Groups.
Halasa, Ofelia
In a public school setting administrators are frequently under local pressure to make a new project service available to all eligible children. However, comparable control groups for project evaluation are often absent, and although random assignment to treatment groups remains the most systematic method of providing controls, this is not often possible in the realities of operating a big-city school system. Several experimental designs, including time-series studies, are suggested as a means of overcoming this methodological problem in project evaluation. (DG)
