Is Key to Your
Students’ Achievement

                      The Vanderbilt Assessment of Leadership in
                      Education (VAL-ED), distributed by Discovery
                      Education, measures principals’ effectiveness using
                      360º feedback from teachers, supervisors, and the
                      principals themselves. VAL-ED focuses on learning-
                      centered leadership behaviors that influence teachers,
                      staff, and most importantly, student achievement. Field
                      tested in a nationally representative sample, VAL-ED
                      is a reliable and valid measure for evaluating learning-
                      centered leadership.
