Launched in 2017, this French MOOC presents the different methods of assessing the impact of public policies that have developed very significantly at the academic level over the last 10 years. These methods are now being used by many institutions to assess the impact of policies or projects that they promote and finance.
It is based on 6 modules consisting of video sequences and quizzes which will present the technical aspects of implementation as well as the conditions of validity of the various methods of impact assessment, both experimental and non-experimental.
