NIE Research Brief Series


The NIE Research Brief Series was conceived as a channel for communicating NIE’s research findings to policymakers, school leaders and researchers. The Research Briefs is aimed at research-to-practice translation, that is, the dissemination, implementation and diffusion of research findings that impact policy and practice. By clearly articulating the research in terms of its implications for policy and teaching practice, we hope to inform decisions on education in Singapore.
