Jung, Steven M.; And Others
The following objectives of the study are discussed in detail: 1) to determine if a successful experimental field study of incentives could be implemented; 2) to develop and refine the methodology required to carry off a large-scale field study of incentives based on six models; and 3) to obtain a preliminary estimate of the effects of incentives on student achievement in order to better assess the potential pay-off of further research on the topic. A list of comprehensive objectives for mathematics and reading at the primary level and other projects documents are appended. (MS)
