Abstract : The performance contracting method was first applied to the education of public school students late in 1969. The ensuing publicity has generated widespread interest in and experimentation with this technique. Payment for services on the basis of student achievement, and the involvement of private, profit-oriented firms in classroom activities, have made performance contracting one of the most discussed and most controversial innovations in American education. The report reviews progress in current programs using this method. (Author)
