This article examines performance funding, specifically one common performance measure-student persistence-to explore if the outcomes are those intended. The article analyzes the effects of performance-based funding measures at three institutions within a single state: a flagship university, a Historically Black University, and a regional, comprehensive institution. Critical suggestions are made on how performance funding formulas can be developed.
