4.1.2 Impact Evaluation: Pre-Experimental Designs

Instead of experimental or quasi-experimental evaluations, an initial evaluation can be more appropriate and rigorous for determining program effectiveness.

The example describes pre-experimental design, but elaborates on developing a more robust evaluation during SIF involvement.
