在教育領域用 KPI 制度的結果

這邊提到在教育領域所設計的制度所期望帶來的效果,與實際帶來的效果的差異:「Every attempt to manage academia makes it worse」。 出自「Academic Research in the 21st Century: Maintaining Scientific Integrity in a Climate of Perverse Incentives and Hypercompetition」這篇論文。 這邊左邊的 Incentive 都是可被量化的方式,而中間有預期的效果,右邊則是實際發生的效果。跟台灣校園裡看到的情況很接近。 可以看出來,你對用腦吃飯的人設計 KPI 制度,大概都是這樣的下場 XDDD
