Abstract: Teacher performance pay is increasingly common in the United States., We assess the “incentive effects” of performance pay—the change in behavior, of teachers present before and after a reform—with a focus on whether male, and female teachers respond differently. Evaluating three performance pay, programs in North Carolina, we find clear evidence of a gender difference:, while male teachers’ value-added remains flat before and after the, introduction of performance pay, the value-added of female teachers declines., We also document suggestive evidence of a gender difference in retention,, with men more likely to remain in schools with performance pay.
