What is CALL?
The Comprehensive Assessment of Leadership for Learning (CALL) is a cloud-based school-wide leadership assessment and feedback system. Rather than focus on an individual school leader, CALL utilizes a multi-source comprehensive survey to assess core leadership practices that are distributed across the school building.
Upon completion of the survey, users receive automated targeted data and feedback designed to support school improvement and professional growth. It provides actionable formative feedback including customized strategies and action plans for school improvement.
In addition, the CALL system provides district leaders with information on school leadership effectiveness. School leaders can use the resulting information to inform School Learning Objectives, Professional Practice Goals, and school improvement planning. School Administrators also may wish to use the survey data as the survey component of their CESA 6 Effectiveness Project© evaluation.
Developed by researchers at the University of Wisconsin, validated at over 200 schools across the country, CALL addresses the five domains of leadership practice most closely correlated with school effectiveness:
- Focus on Learning
- Monitoring Teaching and Learning
- Building Nested Learning Communities
- Acquiring and Allocating Resources
- Maintaining a Safe and Effective Learning Environment
Four to five subdomains are situated within each of the leadership domains. These subdomains serve as the primary unit of analysis for CALL. For CALL users who are also implementing the CESA 6 Effectiveness Project, results are disaggregated by the School Administrator Standards and reference the CALL subdomains so both systems work together seamlessly for the common goal of Educator Growth.
An alignment of the Standards and subdomains.
