The Design of Schools' Performance Incentive Programs in Texas: Findings from Year One of TEEG. Research Brief
National Center on Performance Incentives
A recent report published by the National Center on Performance Incentives (NCPI) presents findings from the first-year evaluation of the Texas Educator Excellence Grant (TEEG) program, one of several statewide educator incentive programs in Texas. This report provides an overview of over 1,000 schools' locally designed TEEG performance incentive programs and the strategies used to identify highly effective teachers during the 2006-07 school year. Findings are based on systematic review of first-year grantees' TEEG applications. Evaluators coded key features of program applications, including the performance measures used to evaluate teachers and the strategies used to disseminate bonus awards to them. Considerable attention was given to how schools used the required 75 percent of their grant to reward teachers for contribution to student performance and collaboration with colleagues.
