This presentation makes the argument for using Path Analysis in the analysis of educational Randomised Controlled Trial evaluation data. Specifically, it suggests Path Analysis is useful for testing educational programme theory or finding out why a programme works (or doesn't work). Sometimes referred to as looking inside the 'black box' of educational program logic. The paper also provides an example of how the authors have done this with an after-school programme that showed negative effects on pupil behaviour outcomes.
