NIE Working Paper Series

NIEWP-Cover

The NIE Working Paper Series is intended for policymakers, school leaders and practitioners with an interest in how theoretical and empirical perspectives inform practice.

Conceptualised with a local issue at hand, each Working Paper provides a summary of current research, local and international. As such, the Working Papers provide a principled response appropriate for the Singapore context and of interest to international scholars.

All Working Papers are freely downloadable to ensure open access and wide dissemination. We ask that you fill out the brief survey before you download the paper. This helps us track the impact of our Working Paper series and provides simple metrics for the authors (e.g., number of downloads). The information is aggregated; no individual information is reported and individual name, institutional name or email address are not collected
