Structured Approach to Equity Analysis: MMT Madagascar Impact Evaluation​

The intervention is designed similarly to most early grade reading interventions with a focus on capacity building activities to strengthen the Madagascar Ministry of Education’s (MoE) ability to design, implement, and monitor teaching and learning materials, as well as teacher trainings. Using the Structured Questions approach, we determine the program’s impacts on different student groups and ascertain the elements of the program that are more or less equity-building. The analysis includes an examination of preexisting learning gaps between gender, demographic, and socioeconomic groups and whether specific elements of the intervention impact all groups equally.
