The Maxwell X Lab started in January 2017 with a singular purpose - partner with the public and nonprofit sector to build evidence for what works.
We leverage behavioral science and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to intelligently design and rigorously evaluate everything we do. Together these powerful techniques allow practitioners to work with the Maxwell School to improve outcomes cost-effectively and understand the precise impact of each change.
