Abstract: This paper investigates the determinants of bullying and evaluates the impact of bullying on students’ academic achievement in Singapore’s schools. Using data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2015, Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) estimation was employed to find the determinants of bullying, while both parametric (OLS regression) and non-parametric (propensity score matching) methods were applied to study the impact of bullying on Grade 4 mathematics and science test scores. After controlling for a multitude of student, family, school, and teacher characteristics, results from both the OLS estimation and propensity score matching consistently revealed that students who are bullied score between 0.174 to 0.213 standard deviations less in mathematics and between 0.166 to 0.209 standard deviations less in science compared to non-bullied students, statistically significant at the 1% level.
