Teachers say the CESA 6 Effectiveness Project© helps them focus on the best approaches for student-specific, differentiated learning - what's working, what's not and what can be tweaked. "It kind of gives you that confirmation that what you are doing is right," says Horicon Schools Teacher Eric Schwendimann. Fellow Horicon Teacher Lisa Schultz adds, "It really has made me look at what am I doing and does it make sense for the kids? Is it helping them to grow where they need to be so they're ready to move onto the next step?"

"Teacher effectiveness gives you a whole other ability to do something that a lot of adults don't do and that is ask kids," Mayville Schools Dean of Students Robin Speidel. "Student evaluation... helps the student be the best that they can be." Horicon Schools Teacher Eric Schwendimann says, "(Students) feel like they have ownership in this. I feel I can hold them responsible and accountable since they've shown me they understand the rules. They had a hand in making them."
