|Title:||WWC Review of the Report "Information and College Access: Evidence from a Randomized Field Experiment"|
|Description:||In the 2012 study, Information and College Access: Evidence from a Randomized Experiment, researchers examined the impact of offering informational materials about financial aid on the postsecondary expectations of high school students. About 1,600 students from five low-achieving high schools in Ontario, Canada participated in the study and were randomly assigned either to an intervention group that received college cost and financial aid information or to a comparison group that did not. Researchers measured the impact of offering these materials on student postsecondary expectations 3 weeks after the intervention. This study is well-implemented randomized controlled trial and the research meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.|
