Abstract: This paper summarizes the current state of research on peer effects in education. Focusing on specific models of peer effects and their underlying theoretical rationales, we review empirical evidence for these models and their implications for future research and discuss potential implications for educational policy. Our review highlights evidence for various types of peer effects to be sensitive to research design, data and study context. We propose a broader utilization of models testing various types of peer effects in specific datasets, attention to methodological issues beyond identifying cause- and effect, and further scrutiny of the theoretical mechanisms underlying identified peer effects in educational settings.
