The paper explores how Tennessee and Ohio have responded to using performance-based funding models that tie appropriations directly to educational outcomes. The research states that the only significant positive effects were that Tennessee community colleges produced more certificates.

He studies higher education finance and policy, and his research focuses on how policies affect educational access and success. Hillman also is a faculty affiliate with UW-Madison's La Follette School of Public Affairs, and is a Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) faculty affiliate.
