The Performance of Performance Standards.
Heckman, James J.; Heinrich, Carolyn; Smith, Jeffery
Journal of Human Resources, v37 n4 p778-811 Fall 2002
A model demonstrating how performance incentives may encourage cream skimming (selecting participants with a high likelihood of success) was applied to data from 16 Job Training Partnership Act training centers. Short-term performance measures were weakly and perversely related to long-term impacts, but efficiency gains/losses from skimming were small, suggesting that centers responded to performance standards.
