N-B Feedback: Local teachers making grade, state reports

Virtually 100 percent of Wells County’s educators taught either effectively or highly effectively during the 2012-2013 school year, according to the data the Indiana Department of Education released Monday.

The state compiled the data from among administrators in the county’s nine public schools, who originally  evaluated their teachers based on four, state-designated categories: highly effective, effective, improvement necessary or ineffective.

But the categories don't necessarily evaluate the same variables. Schools, for instance, can determine how much of an impact ISTEP scores have.
