Evaluation Design Options for the Long-Term Care Registered Apprenticeship Program. 6. Detailed Description of Four Approaches to Evaluating the LTC RAP


In this section, we describe a four component approach to evaluating the LTC RAP. The four components are: (1) use of the Longitudinal Employer Household Dynamics (LEHD) administrative dataset to compare apprentices with non-apprentices and LTC RAP employers and non-employers; (2) a cross-sectional telephone survey of apprentices and non-apprentices; (3) focus groups with apprentices and employers without a comparison group; and (4) a cost-benefit analysis of the LTC RAP from the employer’s perspective. With the exception of the cost-benefit analysis, which depends in part on the analyses of the administrative dataset and the telephone survey, each component is separate, but complementary, and could be funded without the others.
