This course explores the use of experiments and quasi-experiments in education research. We will examine papers that use advanced research methods such as instrumental variables, regression discontinuity, propensity score matching, natural experiments, differences-in-differences, and randomized trials. Students will produce a substantial, original piece of research. This course is intended for PhD students early in their dissertation phase, as well as for advanced master's students who plan to work with empirical research in a professional setting.
