Teacher Attitudes about Performance Incentives in Texas: Early Reactions to the TEEG 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 Texas Educator Excellence Grant (TEEG) program, one of several statewide educator incentive programs in Texas. Findings are based on the responses of full-time instructional personnel at over 1,000 TEEG schools to a survey addressing teachers' attitudes about performance pay in general and the TEEG program specifically. For the most part, teachers' responses were the same across school type and grade-level configuration. The results provide baseline information about teachers' attitudes during the first year of TEEG implementation, against which teacher attitudes in future years can be compared. Teachers' responses indicated that they held primarily positive attitudes about the TEEG programs in their schools.
