CAO Review Survey
The CAO Review is conducted by The IDEA Center, an independent entity. The IDEA Center’s web-based Feedback for Administrators system solicits input on 10 pivotal characteristics, representing five distinct administrative roles. The administrator survey tool gathers impressions on administrative styles, ratings of confidence, and job performance, while also identifying areas for improvement as observed by core constituents. Confidentiality permitting, the respondent sample can be stratified on the basis of a number of roles and relationships, providing a useful demographic breakdown of responses.
