Should measuring teacher effectiveness be based on student growth? Idahoans believe that good teachers matter when it comes to student learning.

According to a statewide survey, 66% of Idahoans think the state’s public schools should teach to the same academic standards as the rest of the country. They strongly support assessments that measure student growth to demonstrate teacher impact.

An overwhelming 83% of Idahoans believe that “it is generally a good idea to measure teacher effectiveness by assessing students’ skills and knowledge when they first come to a teacher and to measure them again when students leave to see what progress was made.”

Idaho cares about teachers and cares about student growth.
