You know there’s a strong link between student learning and instructional leadership. But do you have concrete data about your leaders’ strengths and areas for growth – a baseline that guides their professional learning?
The online MILE™ assessment provides independent measures of a principal’s expertise in four researched-proven areas. And the results will point to opportunities for strengthening practices that tie back to student growth.
WHAT YOU’LL GAIN
Students get increased access and opportunities for meaningful learning
Teachers receive actionable feedback that’s tied directly to their students’ real needs and learning opportunities
Leaders establish a baseline, and focus adult learning on where it makes the greatest impact on student learning
WHO IT’S FOR
MILE™ is designed for all school leaders (teacher leaders, assistant principals, principals and their supervisors, central office staff) who need an objective, easy-to-use and affordable tool to collect and analyze data.
“CEL provides a more comprehensive way of looking at instruction. CEL’s work helps us go deeper”– Lindy Woythaler, Director of Professional Development, Citrus County Schools, FL
HOW IT WORKS
MILE™ measures four areas of instructional leadership expertise known to impact student learning: observation and analysis; providing feedback to teachers; leading professional learning and adopting an inquiry stance.
The responses to MILE™ are evaluated by specially trained instructional leaders using a rubric developed and validated by researchers at the University of Washington and Vanderbilt University. MILE™ is also commonly integrated into the Instructional Leadership Academy.
