Financing public colleges and universities based on the result or performance metrics have their share of critics who think that policies are ineffective or harmful, especially for institutions serving a large number of minority and low students income. But experts in a thought tank focused on equity say it's worth redeeming financing models based on result.

More than 30 states currently use the financing models based on results-based results to tie at least some public education of institutional performance metrics such as registration, the Retention and graduation rates. Years of research have shown that these models often fail to achieve their objectives. A recent report that analyzes the studies of financing models based on performance, revealed that most models result in null or modest improvements to institutional results. A couple of academic research works published in 2017 found that results-based financing models result in a large number of unintended consequences, including minority service institutions, lose significant funds compared to other institutions.

These criticisms are justified, said Kayla Elliott, who is the Assistant Director of Higher Education Policy in the Education Trust and the main author of a new report on funding models based on graduates " Re-imagining results based on results.

  • How can results-based results for universities Promote equity?

    The report argues that through the best design and implementation, results-based financing can equip States and institutions with the tools and responsibility systems necessary to improve equitable results in public education higher.

    "Result-based financing offers the opportunity to address equity in specific ways that have not been done before, with strategies that are based largely on registration," Elliott said. "OBF offers an opportunity to really focus and go to resources to institutions that serve color students and low-income background students."

    The report identifies five key metrics already included in the funds of some States. Models that could be adopted more broadly to build better models across the country: Registration of Color Students, Low-Income Students Registration, Color Student Success, Low-Income Students and Campus Racial Climate.

    Registration and success metrics are quite simple and can be easily quantified. For example, institutions can count the number of color students enrolled in a specific program, or the number of low-income students who receive a title each year.

    Some states encourage the registration of specific ethnic students or racial backgrounds. The funding system based on the result of Wisconsin for four-year institutions prioritizes students of Southeast Asian, while Montana prioritizes Native American students, and Hawaii prioritizes Hawaiian students.

    fewer states have metrics related to the race than to revenue. condition. There are some reasons for this, but Elliott pointed to affirmative action prohibitions as a complicated
