No Evidence That Incentive Pay for Teacher Teams Improves Student Outcomes: Results from a Randomized Trial. Research Brief
Adamson, David M.
RAND Corporation
Researchers examined whether rewarding teams of teachers for student performance had an effect on student achievement or teacher practices or attitudes in a demonstration project in Round Rock, Texas. They found that the intervention had no effect in any of these areas. Students taught by teacher teams who were offered incentives scored slightly better on some standardized tests, but the differences were small and not statistically significant. [This research brief describes work done for RAND Education documented in "Team Pay for Performance: Experimental Evidence From the Round Rock Pilot Project on Team Incentives," by Matthew G. Springer, John F. Pane, Vi-Nhuan Le, Daniel F. McCaffrey, Susan Freeman Burns, Laura S. Hamilton, and Brian Stecher. To access this report, see ED518379.]
