I see, this allows for differences between the two groups to be attributed to the experimental stimuli (i.e., treatment or intervention). Thank you.

The benefit of using random assignment is that it “evens the playing field.” The groups will differ only in the program or treatment they are assigned. Any observed change between the two groups can be attributed to the program or treatment rather than the characteristics of the groups.

Thanks to the MEL courses and everyone’s sharing, I’ve learned so much about program evaluation! One puzzling question for me is that as there are so many different models for evaluation, how could the evaluators decide to choose? Hence, may I ask what factors should be taken into consideration when I plan a program evaluation?

Hello. Some of my colleagues suggest that we could use the theory-based model in our program evaluation. But I don’t know this model very much. Could anyone kindly give me a clue about the strengths and weaknesses of this model?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
