Bonus Awards for Teachers in Texas' Performance Pay Program: Findings from the First Round of TEEG Schools. Research Brief
National Center on Performance Incentives
A recent report published by the National Center on Performance Incentives (NCPI) presents findings from the second-year of a multi-year evaluation of the Texas Educator Excellence Grant (TEEG) program, a statewide educator incentive program that operated in Texas. As part of this evaluation report, researchers examined how first-year TEEG schools (i.e., those in TEEG during the 2006-07 school year) proposed and actually distributed bonus awards to teachers as part of each locally-designed performance incentive plan. Specifically, they looked at the dispersion of minimum and maximum awards to teachers in each school and the equality of bonus awards within a school. The report also examines how teacher characteristics are related to the design and distribution of teacher bonus awards in TEEG schools. (Contains 1 footnote.)
