This is imp. But higher impacts on researcher tests could just be better design. We find this in India ed tech work. Issue isn't validity: paper-pen tests, careful design, external items. Mostly, school tests don't pick effects on below grade-level skills.

Mother-tongue instruction is not obviously optimal. Also highly relevant for integrating immigrant schoolchildren in rich countries.

Fantastic podcast on heterogeneity in impacts of microfinance by & . "It’s not like Bayesian methods get you out of this hot water; they just acknowledge that you’re in the hot water." We should all take treatment effect heterogeneity this seriously.
