EXPERMNTL DESIGN & ANALYSIS, 4 pts, GR8768
EXPERMNTL DESIGN & ANALYS
This seminar is meant to build on the foundation laid in POLS GU4768, which covered core assumptions required for unbiased causal inference and considered ways that they may be jeopardized in practice by noncompliance, attrition, interference, and researcher discretion. Special attention will again be devoted to field experiments, or randomized trials conducted in real-world settings, although many issues will pertain as well to lab and survey experiments. The aim of this course is to prepare participants to read and produce experimental research at the social science frontier, drawing on recent developments in experimental design and analysis. Students will be reading new and noteworthy papers from a variety of disciplines. Participants are expected to investigate a cutting-edge topic, make an expository presentation to the class, and write-up a publication-quality application.
