Balsakhi Remedial Tutoring in Vadodara and Mumbai, India

This randomized control trial (RCT) from The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) used rotation design to evaluate the impact of a remedial tutoring program in India.

77 schools in Mumbai and 124 in Vadodara were identified to use for this evaluation. Randomization was “rotated” in that, in 2001, half of the schools received a tutor for grade 3, and the other half received one for grade 4. In 2002, the schools received a tutor for the previously untreated grade. In this way, the impact of treatment could be determined by comparing grade 3 students in schools who received a grade 3 tutor to grade 3 students in schools who received a grade 4 tutor.
