Lawmakers were hit with a pop quiz on Idaho history when public schools chief Tom Luna decided to show off some new technology being used in classrooms — but not everyone passed. During a hearing Wednesday, the 27 lawmakers on the Senate and House education committees were asked two questions and given electronic devices that function like a remote to input their answers. While Luna used the “clickers” as an example of how technology is revamping the traditional classroom, the devices also allowed the audience a brief chuckle when some lawmakers failed the short quiz. When asked what year Idaho became a state, the results were automatically projected onto a screen and showed that 17 percent of lawmakers on the two education panels did not know the correct answer/Associated Press.

Question: Without looking, do you know when Idaho became a state and which town was the first state capitol?
