New study claims to show a positive correlation between merit-pay and higher student test scores

from Education World

A new study claims to show that teacher merit-pay programs can lead to significant increases in student learning and test scores.

Nguyen and Matthew Springer of Vanderbilt University. Key findings include higher test scores for students who are taught by teachers that participate in merit-pay programs. The researchers also estimate that students receive an extra 3-4 weeks of schooling from these teachers as opposed to non-incentive salary-based educators. more
