Abstract
This paper discusses limitations of the black-box experimental
archetype by highlighting the narrowness of outcome-focused approaches. For a
more complete understanding of the nuanced implications of policies and programs,
this study calls for an investigation of causal mechanism and treatment effect
heterogeneity in experimentally evaluated interventions. This study draws on
two distinct but closely related empirical studies, one undertaken by Na and
Paternoster (2012) and the other by Na, Loughran, and Paternoster (2015), that
go beyond the estimation of a population average treatment effect by adopting
more recent methodological advancements that are still underappreciated and
underutilized in evaluation research.
