Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs

Students of public policy methods complete policy analyses on randomly assigned issues. During the semester, they do memorandum exercises to apply concepts introduced in the textbook Policy Analysis: Concepts and Practice to their issues. Near the end of the semester, each student submits a 15-page policy analysis (exclusive of an executive summary and an unlimited number of pages of appendices) to Professor David Weimer and to one other student. The other student writes a collegial critique, and Professor Weimer prepare a more comprehensive evaluation following a template that helps him cover important points systematically.
