Associate Professor Drew Bailey is presenting at the Wednesday, October 16th meeting of the Educational Policy and Social Context (EPSC) lab, the first meeting of fall quarter 2019. The lab will meet from 12:00-1:00 in Education 2005. The title of Dr. Bailey's presentation is "Treatment Effect Forecasting: What is it, and Why should you care?"
I will argue that developmentalists and interventionists should work together to build and evaluate models for forecasting intervention impacts in the years following the end of treatment, conditional on an intervention’s effectiveness at the end of treatment. These interactions are mutually beneficial, allowing interventionists to improve the design of evaluation studies and providing developmentalists with causally relevant information useful for selecting among models with similar statistical fit. I will present the results of a forecasting study of three early math interventions.
EPSC lab meetings are held on Wednesdays, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm, in Room 2005 or alternative location announced in advance. The lab will not meet on weeks when a Brownbag presentation or a faculty meeting is scheduled.
