360 feedback
360° Feedback

“360° is an excellent diagnostic and development tool

for educational leadership in public schools and school

districts. Not only do those who are new to educational

leadership develop a more comprehensive and

accurate self-image, the school leadership framework

helps develop a much deeper understanding of the

commitments of leadership.”

(National Center for School Leadership)


360 assessment
360° Assessment

  • VAL-ED is a 360° Feedback Tool:

    • Taken by the principal, the principal’s supervisor, and all teachers

    • Provides the best feedback to principles

    • Incorporates inputs from the school’s entire professional community

    • All respondents assess the same facets of principal leadership

    • VAL-ED reports allow principals to compare their ratings against the ratings given by teachers and supervisors

    • Allows the principal to get informative feedback on his/her areas of excellence and areas with need for improvement


Learning centered leadership
Learning–Centered Leadership

  • Learning-Centered Leadership is defined as:

    • Staying consistently focused on learning, teaching, curriculum, and assessment

    • Making all dimensions of schooling (administration, organization, etc.) work in the service of improved student learning

  • Focus on:

  • The centrality of the school leader

  • The changing role of the school leader

  • The collaborative nature of school leadership

  • High standards and expectations

  • Informed performance-based system of evaluation


Research and development
Research and Development

  • The team: Porter, Murphy, Goldring, Elliott, Polikoff, May, O’Toole, Cravens

  • Wallace Foundation $1.5 million for 2005 to 2008.

  • Institute for Education Sciences currently funding psychometric studies for the period of 2008 to 2012.


The val ed feedback tool
The VAL-ED Feedback Tool

  • VAL-ED Features Include:

    • 72 items for principals/supervisor

    • 36 items for teachers

    • Principal, Teachers, & Supervisor respondents

    • An effectiveness scale (1 – 5)

      • 1 = Ineffective to 5 = Outstandingly effective.

    • Indications of the sources of evidence.

    • Two parallel forms.

    • Online Administration


Purpose and uses
Purpose and Uses

  • The VAL-ED reports principal performance through:

    • Norm-referenced scores

    • Criterion-reference scores

  • VAL-ED can be used annually or more frequently to:

    • Facilitate a data-based performance evaluation

    • Measure performance growth

    • Guide professional development

  • The VAL-ED is a key component of a comprehensive leadership evaluation system.

  • Monitoring:

    • Systematically collect and analyze data to make judgments that guide decisions and actions for continuous improvement.


Sources of evidence
Sources of Evidence

  • Reports from others

  • Personal observations

  • School Documents

  • School projects and activities

  • Other sources

  • No evidence

    • (automatically rates principal as ineffective)




Performance level descriptors
Performance Level Descriptors

  • Distinguished

    • A distinguished leader exhibits leadership behaviors of core components and key processes at levels of effectiveness that over time are virtually certain to influence teachers to bring the school to a point that results in strong value-added to student achievement and social learning for all students.

  • Proficient

    • A proficient leader exhibits leadership behaviors of core components and key processes at levels of effectiveness that over time are likely to influence teachers to bring the school to a point that results in acceptable value-added to student achievement and social learning for all students.


Performance level descriptors cont
Performance Level Descriptors (cont)

  • Basic

    • A leader at the basic level of proficiency exhibits leadership behaviors of core components and key processes at levels of effectiveness that over time are likely to influence teachers to bring the school to a point that results in acceptable value-added to student achievement and social learning for some sub-groups of students, but not all.

  • Below basic

    • A leader at the below basic level of proficiency exhibits leadership behaviors of core components and key processes at levels of effectiveness that over time are unlikely to influence teachers to bring the school to a point that results in acceptable value-added to student achievement and social learning for students.
