Remedying Education: Evidence from Two Randomized Experiments in India
This evaluation of two programs that target individual students’ ability levels finds that both have a significant positive impact on learning outcomes. A remedial education program pulled out grade 3 and grade 4 students who were falling behind and hired young women to deliver more tailored instruction to these students. Students in the second program, a computer-assisted learning program, saw large increases in their math scores.
