Students show progress under teacher-bonus system
from Education Week
A performance-bonus system that made use of "student learning objectives" — academic growth goals set by teachers in consultation with their principals — helped improve student achievement in schools using the measure, concludes a new study. The study, by the Community Training and Assistance Center, a Boston-based nonprofit technical-assistance and policy-evaluation firm, found that students taught by participating teachers in math improved on average at a rate 12 percent higher than those in comparison schools.
