- IGC Research on India
This project studies the effect of random dormitory assignment in a tertiary-level educational institution in India on subsequent academic achievements. The effects of peer-ability are around one-third as high as that of own-ability, with effects increasing with assortative matching. It finds that students from non-urban and non-English backgrounds do particularly better in higher education when assigned higher-ability peers. The effects of both randomly-allocated roommates and self-nominated friends play a significant role in the education production process, mainly through social interactions such as group discussions.
