Effects on Other Outcomes
Part two of this annotated bibliography offers an overview of literature published since 2014 on the effects of Outcomes-Based Funding (OBF) policies on other OBF-related outcomes, such as changes in enrollment and changes to institutional policies and practice. The literature is presented in two tables:
Literature on OBF’s effects on other outcomes. Table 1 includes literature covering outcomes and effects of OBF other than degrees and attainment.
Books that examine OBF implementation and other outcomes. Table 2 includes literature from two preeminent publications on outcomes-based funding. The table presents a summary of each book and identifies key topics covered by the authors.
Please note that some studies may not be relevant to current OBF policies given that many states have updated their policies since the studies were conducted. For example, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee have each updated their OBF formulas at least once since 2009.
Ø – No significant effect
