Teacher Behaviors and Performance Incentives in Texas: Early Reactions to the GEEG Program. 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 Governor's Educator Excellence Grant (GEEG) program, one of several statewide performance incentive programs in Texas. The report provides an overview of changes to teacher behavior and instructional practices during the first year of program implementation (2006-07). Findings are based on an electronic survey given to GEEG teachers in the spring of 2007, yielding a response rate of 80 percent and representing over 3,000 teachers in 92 of the 99 GEEG schools. Results related to the following key issues are addressed in this policy brief: (1) Changes in behavior and attitudes of teachers; (2) Impact on teachers' instructional practice; (3) Teachers' use of assessment results; and (4) Teachers' use of parental engagement practices.
