IEA Compass: Briefs in Education Series
This series address issues of interest to a broad range of educational stakeholders, especially those involved in influencing educational decision and policymaking. Each publication in the series aims to connect study findings to recurrent and emerging questions in education policy debates at the international and national levels. The briefs cover a range of themes in relation to teaching and learning in school subjects addressed by the IEA studies. The series is edited by Dr David Rutkowski.
Note that the series was initially entitled 'Policy Briefs' however the name has been updated to reflect the wider readership of these articles.
Education systems should foster conditions that enable teachers to better enact the intended mathematics curriculum, taking into account students' previous knowledge and current needs.
