About the Service

The WestEd Four Domains CALL System identifies pressing challenges for schools, uncovers opportunities for targeted intervention, and informs school improvement plans.

The Comprehensive Assessment of Leadership for Learning (CALL) is a school- and districtwide leadership assessment and feedback system designed to support professional growth, leadership development, and school improvement planning. Rather than focus on an individual school leader, CALL utilizes a multi-source comprehensive survey to assess core leadership practices that are distributed across an organization. Upon completion of the survey, users receive immediate targeted data and feedback. CALL was originally developed and validated through a federally funded research grant.

The CALL Team has been working with WestEd to develop the Four Domains CALL System to measure leadership practices and deliver feedback relative to the Four Domains for Rapid School Improvement: Turnaround Leadership, Talent Development, Instructional Transformation, and Culture Shift. Schools and districts will receive detailed data related to each of the Four Domains.

What Makes This Service Unique

WestEd, in collaboration with The Comprehensive Assessment of Leadership for Learning (CALL), developed the assessment and feedback system that measures specific practices within the Four Domains for Rapid School Improvement Framework. This framework, developed by the Center on School Turnaround at WestEd, outlines the key practices of successful school turnaround in four domains that research and experience suggest are critical to rapid and significant improvement:

  • Turnaround Leadership
  • Talent Development
  • Instructional Transformation
  • Culture Shift

As home to the Center on School Turnaround, WestEd brings firsthand understanding of the challenges your schools and districts face.

The depth, diversity, and legacy of our school improvement work is strengthened by extensive, research-based knowledge to help all learners — infants to adults — succeed in school and beyond.
