Targeted Remedial Education: Experimental Evidence from Peru (Technical Note No. 1317; p. 43)Saavedra, J. E., Näslund-Hadley, E., & Alfonso, M. - 2017 - Inter-American Development Bank
Improving learning among low-achieving students is a challenge in education. We present results from the first randomized experiment of an inquiry-based remedial science education program for low-performing elementary students in a developing-country setting. Third-grade students in 48 low-income public elementary schools in Metropolitan Lima who score at the bottom half of their school distribution in a science test taken at the beginning of the school year are randomly assigned to receive...
Fostering Early Math Comprehension: Experimental Evidence from ParaguayNaslund-Hadley, E., Parker, S. W., & Hernandez-Agramonte, J. M. - 2014 - Global Education Review, 1(4)
Research indicates that preschool children need to learn pre-math skills to build a foundation for primary- and secondary-level mathematics. This paper presents the results from the early stages of a pilot mathematics program implemented in Cordillera, Paraguay. In a context of significant gaps in teacher preparation and pedagogy, the program uses interactive audio segments that cover the entire preschool math curriculum. Since Paraguayan classrooms tend to be bilingual, the audio and...
