Large-scale evaluation considerations for multi-site implementation trials
What is it about?
Provides a rational for adopting a large-scale evaluation approach in local evaluation settings and presents an overview of the different methods and approaches used in conducting large-scale evaluation.
Why is it important?
Ineffective programs show little variation in their ineffectiveness. In contrast, effective programs generally show a range of effects. Documenting the stability of impact across implementation settings may establish the likely applicability of results or reasons effectiveness varies. Evidence-based program adopters need information beyond just effectiveness to know if an evidence-based program is a practical and appropriate fit for their setting. By documenting how the same program is implemented in different settings on different samples - and how those differences affect impact estimates - researchers can provide program adopters with the information they need for evidence-informed adoption of effective programs
