What We Do
The Comprehensive Assessment of Leadership for Learning (CALL) is a school- and district-wide leadership assessment and feedback system. The CALL Team offers a variety of tools and services to support district-wide school improvement work. The CALL Systems were built on the principles that: school leadership is critical to enhancing teaching and learning, leadership is not confined a single person, and data should be practical and action-oriented.
In addition to the Primary School- and District-Level Assessments, we have partnered with excellent mission-driven organizations, WestEd and WIDA, to create a versions of CALL to meet the needs of various educators.
All CALL Systems include a user-friendly reporting system that school and district leaders use as a tool to support school improvement work. And, the CALL Team offers various customized services including professional development and custom survey design work to meet education leaders' needs, help them maximize the value of the action-based CALL data, and support the implementation of action-based school improvement plans.
Developed and validated at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Comprehensive Assessment of Leadership for Learning (CALL) measures key instructional leadership practices at the school and district level. School and District leaders across the country use CALL to support school improvement planning, inform professional development plans, and to conduct comprehensive needs assessments.
The Four Domains CALL System was derived from the research-validated Comprehensive Assessment of Leadership for Learning (CALL) instrument. The Four Domains CALL System measures key instructional leadership practices at the school and district level that are aligned to the Four Domains for Rapid School Improvement framework developed at the Center on School Turnaround at WestEd. School and District leaders use the Four Domains CALL System for comprehensive needs assessments and to support school improvement planning.
WIDA School Improvement System
Developed in collaboration with WIDA, this school-wide leadership and assessment system measures the key practices that support teaching of English Learners (EL). The resulting data informs the professional development needs in a school to support teachers in their effort to support all students in the classroom.
