ICF Research + Evaluation Experimental + Quasi-Experimental Research

Experimental + Quasi-Experimental Research

ICF International helps clients develop and improve programs through rigorous, custom-designed research, often combining experimental and quasi-experimental methods implemented over multiple sites.


ICF develops and implements flexible, mixed-method approaches that blend qualitative and quantitative methods to conduct program assessments—determining not just whether a program works, but how it works, why it works, and where it can work best—and create a study with long-term value for our clients. Applying our broad technology expertise, ICF’s experimental studies proceed faster and easier using tools such as integrated standalone and web-based data management systems that are unique and adaptable.

ICF addresses the full lifecycle of experimental and quasi-experimental research services, including:

  • Methodology and study design
  • Training and technical assistance for study implementation
  • Quantitative and qualitative data analysis
  • Database and systems development
  • Secondary data analysis
  • Multilevel analysis
  • Reports and publication of results
  • Programming for sustainable quality improvement

Our team includes Ph.D.-level statisticians and subject matter experts in areas such as economics, health, and education, giving us a rich understanding of the contextual environment in which a study is performed, and informing results and analysis with our proven expertise.
