Randomized Control Trials
We Have the Capacity to Conduct Rigorous Evaluations
Philliber has extensive experience with large and small projects using randomized control trials. We have developed strategies to track youth over time, analyze data in a timely manner and communicate effectively with program staff. We work with the client to provide the highest quality random assignment study. Our capacity has allowed us to have follow-up rates that have consistantly been well above the 80% standard. We meet government and funder requirements to run randomized control trials.
We evaluated the Teen Outreach Program between 1991 and 1995 using a random-assignment experimental design. Almost 700 students were randomly assigned to either the control group or program group and surveyed over time. We have continued to evaluate many programs across the country who use the Teen Outreach Program.
In addition, in 2010 Philliber was awarded three large-scale studies from the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH). These projects required working in a variety of states across the United States including Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Washington, New York, and Illinios. OAH asked us to take on a fourth such project in 2014 in Kansas City, MO.
