The Educational Leadership Assessment (ELA) is a set of multiple choice tests based on the dimensions of educational leadership. The assessment is intended to identify individual strengths within each dimension, and areas of growth, for both potential and experienced administrators. Results can be used to make clear and relevant decisions to guide individualized study in a leadership program, and to identify principal candidates by leadership potential and knowledge. The intended participant level for the assessment is primarily individuals holding a Master of Education degree.
This version of the ELA only contains one of the ten leadership dimensions: Building Instructional Capacity.
The Educational Leadership Assessment was developed in response to contemporary research investigating leadership assessment instruments. The research clearly showed there was no single test or set of instruments that would assess the full spectrum required by educational leaders. ASAP met the need by creating a fully aligned and unique set of assessment instruments that have been used by school districts across more than a dozen states for over fifteen years. The ELA is reviewed and revised annually to ensure it is current and consistent with leadership standards.
