Implementation and Impacts of Performance Funding in Three States

July 2011−Present

This study examines how different kinds of state performance funding programs have been implemented in three states—Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee. It analyzes what steps have been taken to implement these programs, their impacts on institutional practices and student outcomes, the main obstacles and unintended impacts that the programs have encountered, the means that the programs have adopted to monitor and address these obstacles and unintended impacts, and the effectiveness of these countermeasures.

This study is funded by Lumina Foundation for Education.
