This long awaited successor of the original Cook/CampbellQuasi-Experimentation: Design and Analysis Issues for Field Settingsrepresents updates in the field over the last two decades. The book covers four major topics in field experimentation: Theoretical matters: Experimentation, causation, and validity Quasi-experimental design: Regression discontinuity designs, interrupted time series designs, quasi-experimental designs that use both pretests and control groups, and other designs Randomized experiments: Logic and design issues, and practical problems involving ethics, recruitment, assignment, treatment implementation, and attrition Generalized causal inference: A grounded theory of generalized causal inference, along with methods for implementing that theory in single and multiple studies
