The ASAP® InBasket is an innovative online assessment designed to gauge an individual’s abilities in dimensions aligned with the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders. Each InBasket provides feedback correlated to the ASAP course modules, and provides small group and cohort exercises for reviewing the InBasket content when used as a cohort learning tool.
The InBasket eliminates the cost of scoring and/or training scorers, which makes the traditional form of this type of assessment more expensive for school districts. Results are immediately available to the users and districts receive individual and group results in an administrator’s report.
What type of assessment is it?
The InBasket is entirely scenario based. All questions reflect real-life events, task and activities that school leaders face every day. It addresses the challenges faced by teachers, assistant principals, principals and district staff and can be used for cohorts combining participants from each of these educator levels, or made up from any one job title. The scenarios include short-form case studies, animations, and interactive media.
Leadership Dimension: Decision Making & Prioritization
The Decision Making & Prioritization InBasket simulates the issues that face a busy principal each day. Key characteristics of effective leaders are their ability to prioritize a myriad of tasks and make appropriate decisions in response to them. The purpose of this assessment is to gauge a participant’s ability to prioritize tasks and responsibilities and to make effective decisions.
InBasket assessments in additional leadership dimensions are also available.
