Primary Outcomes (end points)
A primary outcome in the experiment is a basic literacy score, measured as the number of letters/characters the participant can recognise from a sheet or characters in pre- and post-intervention tests. Another primary outcome is the satisfaction of treatment users with the intervention, though this cannot be meaningfully be compared to the treatment group. We are particularly interested in whether treated users would prefer the proposed scheme over NREG for themselves, if they had a choice, over the leading existing labour-market scheme. Also, which individual or household characteristics are associated with progress in literacy, and which demographics are the most/least likely to prefer the scheme over NREG?
