Description: Randomized experiments have been viewed as the gold standard in research. However, in real world evaluations, randomized experiments are not always either possible nor even desirable. Dr. Michael Quinn Patton, nationally recognized expert in the field of utilization-focused evaluation, will conduct a seminar which will review the strengths and weaknesses of randomized experiments in evaluation and present rigorous alternatives for dealing with issues of attribution and generalizability.
