Mathematica's rigorous evaluation of the Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) will estimate the impact of performance pay on student achievement, as well as educators' attitudes toward and awareness of TIF and their mobility and recruitment. This report provides contextual background on performance pay programs, characteristics of participating TIF grantee schools, and details on the TIF evaluation study design.
