Alumni satisfaction

Boise State measures the degree to which our alumni are satisfied with our programs to work with P-12 students. The feedback from our alumni helps inform ongoing improvements to our initial certification and advanced educator preparation programs.

The 2020 Alumni Survey was sent to 2018-2019 alumni from our initial programs. The survey includes 16 questions that are aligned with the four Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) areas. The results have been collapsed into these InTASC four areas: The Learner and Learning, Content and Pedagogical Knowledge, Instructional Practice and Professional Responsibility. The survey items are evaluated on the Danielson Framework for Teaching (FFT) scale: Distinguished, Proficient, Basic and Unsatisfactory.

Results from the 2020 Alumni Survey indicate the majority of our completers consider their preparation to be “Proficient” or “Distinguished” in the four InTASC areas.
