A number of Teacher Incentive Fund sites have adopted the Vanderbilt Assessment for Leadership in Education (Val-Ed) as one way to measure the effectiveness of principal performance in their principal evaluation and bonus plans. Val-Ed is a 360-degree school leadership assessment tool that uses a survey-like format to collect ratings on six core components of effective schools and six corresponding key process competencies of the principal under evaluation listed here respectively: high standards for student learning, planning; rigorous curriculum, implementing; quality instruction, supporting; culture of learning and professional behavior, advocating; connections to external communities, connecting; and performance accountability, monitoring. This paper provides TIF grantees with suggestions on how to develop an observation rubric consistent with Val-Ed.
