Evaluators are under increased pressure to collect compelling evidence on the quality of change that a policy or a program introduces. With this series, case studies of rigorous evaluation in practice are described. In this first case study, Sarah O’Dell, Evaluation Manager at ICF International will provide an overview of her team’s lessons learned in an evaluation of policy implementation among group child care providers in New York City. This webinar will highlight the time frame required for planning for a large scale investigation, development and selection of instruments and research design, the resources needed to implement a multisite outcome evaluation, and types of technical responses to complications in field work and data analyses.
Sarah O’Dell has worked at ICF International for 6 years and is currently a project manager specializing in public health research and evaluation. Her work at ICF has afforded her the opportunity to be involved in the design and implementation of a wide range of research and evaluation projects focused in health promotion and chronic disease prevention.
