The Power and Pitfalls of Education Incentives - The authors offer advice on designing incentive programs for children based on a number of experiments where they are provided incentives for grades and test scores, as well as for things such as doing homework, reading books, and attending school every day. They argue that incentives have some power to improve student achievement and outline the critical elements of an incentive program. An appendix is available.
