  1. Values are raw (SD) unless stated otherwise.
  2. *Adjusted difference in average z-score of respective outcome between quasi-test and quasi-control group with 95% confidence interval and P value, adjusted for gender and grade in Linear Mixed Model with random effect for PTE and school
  3. **Z-scores ranked by lowest value. Higher z-score value signifies better result
