Val Ed is a 360Âº feedback tool to be administered to principals, teachers, and principalsâ supervisors that produces a quantitative diagnostic profile. The tool is copyrighted and therefore Discovery Education is the only vendor that we can work with to utilize the Val Ed tool. Additionally, this is the only tool of this kind linked to the current national leadership standards (ISLLC 2008), which the redesigned principal preparation programs must be linked to according to new state requirements.
