Introduction to Center for Experimental Economics in Education

The Center for Experimental Economics in Education (CEEE) is a research institute directly subordinate to Shaanxi Normal University. Our goal is to conduct rigorous experiments that simulate actual government programs or policies and use our findings to transform the actions of government and other members of the education sector. We hope this will allow us to bring about greater educational equity and allow poor rural children to realize their dreams.

We intend to reach this goal by carrying out the following primary activities:

1.Establish a new platform for experimental research to simulate and evaluate Chinese education policy.
2.On the foundation of this experimental research platform, conduct interdisciplinary action research in the spheres of education and rural public policy and advocating for the spread of rigorous impact evaluation research in China.
3.Create formal Experimental Economics in Education (EEE) discipline—with the collaboration of both Chinese and international academics—so as to cultivate a new generation of Chinese experts in the field of EEE.
4.Provide government policymakers and social organizations with an empirical foundation drawn from rigorous impact evaluations of their policies and programs.

CEEE is oriented towards the needs of society and emphasizes the integration of academic research, policy advocacy and social action. Our team works to find low-cost, feasible and effective ways to resolve critical problems in the education and development spheres and makes use of rigorous empirical evidence to transform policy advocacy in these domains. CEEE is particularly focused on conducting research in four core theme areas: nutrition, health and education; technology and human capital; keeping kids in school; and rural public services.

CEEE firmly believes that policy and program effectiveness can only be accurately measured through experimental or quasi-experimental impact evaluation methods. CEEE is unique in its management, operations and personnel structure. In all internal operations, we emphasize community-based and collaborative research. We attach great importance to collecting our own data while also working actively to facilitate collaborative exchange with domestic and international academics. Our core collaborators are the Center for Chinese Agricultural Policy at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Stanford University in the United States. At the same time, we work to maintain close working relationships with multiple levels of government and members of the public administration sector, foundations and non-profit organizations in China.

CEEE has already formed a Policy Advisory Committee, Academic Advisory Committee, and CEEE Council.
