Professional development incentives for Oregon’s early childhood education workforce: A randomized study: Study snapshot


This study used two randomized controlled trials in 2018 and 2019 to test whether sending emails and offering different financial incentives to Oregon ECE workforce members increased career lattice sign-up, education and training levels, or workplace retention. The sign-up randomization examined whether emails encouraged registration in the career lattice for workforce members who were not already registered. The incentive randomization examined whether emails, along with access to a small monetary incentive at an earlier-than-usual step in the career lattice or automatic enrollment in community college scholarships, encouraged movement up the career lattice for workforce members who were already registered.
