Results

HOW WE MEASURE

EGG works to demonstrate results rigorously, in two ways:

BEFORE AND AFTER

EGG conducts a baseline survey in its program schools and tracks changes in results regularly over time as the program runs.

CONTROLLED EXPERIMENT

Absent other major shifts, like an economic upheaval, substantial changes occurring quickly before and after EGG’s program can reasonably be attributed to EGG’s program. But to confirm that nothing else influenced EGG’s results, EGG tries to compare EGG program schools with similar non-program schools, where both groups of schools are selected randomly or arbitrarily in the same setting.
