Longitudinal Qualitative Study of Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency (ISIS) Participants

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   Kristin Seefeldt

The School of Social Work at the University of Michigan will work with Abt Associates to conduct longitudinal, qualitative interviews with a sample of participants who are part of the evaluation of ?Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency (ISIS).? Kristin S. Seefeldt, Assistant Professor, will serve as the Principal Investigator at the University of Michigan and will perform a number of tasks related to this project. The ISIS evaluation is testing a variety of training strategies designed to move less educated workers onto career pathways. Seefeldt will take the lead on developing interview protocols and related materials to be used for data collection. She will work with Abt staff on developing a sampling strategy to determine potential respondents who will be invited to participate in ongoing qualitative data collection. Prior to data collection, Seefeldt will develop training materials and lead a training session on qualitative interviewing for other staff working on the evaluation.
