Research Papers

Research That’s Making an Impact

The Education Innovation Institute periodically chooses particularly interesting recent research papers for the Ed News Colorado site. Some papers address topics in the news, others use innovative methods to investigate important problems. The list represents just a sample of recent research gleaned from major publications and scholarly organizations but the papers provide interesting insights and occasional breakthroughs on key education questions.

There were different reasons for including each paper, including that the topic has been in the news lately, the research challenges what we thought we knew, or the project was just fun. This list is not intended to be exhaustive -- it is from a narrow list of sources written exclusively by economists. Neither EII nor UNC endorses the views expressed in these papers, but they are worth a look if they touch on topics of interest to you.
