A little now for a lot later: A look at a Texas Advanced Placement incentive program

This study examines the impact of the Texas Advanced Placement Incentive Program, which pays students and teachers for passing grades on advanced placement (AP) exams. Student outcomes were compared from before and after the adoption of the program to a selection of comparison schools. Results showed that participating students had a 30 percent increase in the number if students scoring above 1100 on the SAT or 24 on the ACT, and an 8 percent increase in students enrolling in college.
