Case Studies in Performance Funding. The Performance Funding Project, Tennessee Higher Education Commission.
Bogue, E. Grady; Troutt, William E.
Case studies of five Tennessee state colleges where pilot projects in performance funding were undertaken are presented. The Performance Funding Project of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission is designed to explore the feasibility of allocating some portion of state funds to institutions on a performance effectiveness criterion as compared to an enrollment criterion. The pilot projects are designed to explore the development of institutional goals related to instructional impact and to identify and test indicators related to those goals. The five colleges that are discussed are: Chandler State Community College, Harpeth College, Guyman State University, The University of New Winston, and The Two Rivers Technical Institute. Institutional setting and goals and performance indicators of each college are examined. Data are appended on performance indicators regarding student enrollment and test scores, employment of full-time and part-time faculty, faculty salaries, alumni giving, research proposals submitted/funded, instructional program developments, degrees awarded, employment of administrators, facilities, and finances.
