Results of the Pilot Test of the School Leaders' Licensure Assessment.
Livingston, Samuel A.
The School Leaders' Licensure Assessment (SLLA) is a 6-hour, written, constructed-response test intended for use in the licensing of principals, headmasters, and other school leaders. The pilot test was administered in 1996 to 247 students who were within six credits of completing their graduate degree programs in educational leadership. About 36 percent were from urban districts, 32 percent from suburban districts, and 32 percent from rural districts. About 66 percent of the test takers were female, 51 percent were white, 33 percent were black, and 14 percent were Hispanic, 2 percent were American Indian. The scorers of the pilot test were practicing school principals. The scoring was holistic, each scorer read the response to the question and assigned a numerical rating, and each question had a set of explicit scoring rules. The total scores of the participants ranged from 20 to 74, with a mean of 53 and a standard deviation of 11. The largest differences in the subgroups were found between the white participants and those from the minority populations. Tables and figures provide various visual representations of the findings.
