Aligning Assessment Instruments with the Sterling Quality Criteria: Technical Report for the Teaching and Leadership Center at Florida Atlanta University.
Pisapia, John; Coukos-Semmel, Eleni
Florida Atlantic University College of Education was commissioned by the South Florida Annenberg Challenge to develop and create five diagnostic and assessment instruments for leaders that will provide candidate information about: (1) personality skills related to leadership; (2) transformational leadership potential; (3) leadership skills; (4) written and oral communication skills; and (5) decision-making and task prioritization abilities. The instruments will be used to screen potential administrators. The final products will be on-line, self-administered instruments, and were expected to be completed by February 2003. This report addresses the first phase, an evaluation of existing leadership instruments to determine their applicability and psychometric strengths, by establishing a framework to guide the work and then providing an evaluation of the available assessment instruments for each section of the framework. Approximately 120 available instruments were reviewed. Two instruments, Benchmarks and Dimensions of Leadership Profile (DLP) were able to measure six of the eight leader attributes, but neither measured the attribute of aspiration. The DLP did not measure adaptiveness, and benchmarks was not able to measure attraction. One instrument could measure all four core functions, and four instruments could measure three of four core functions. The findings about the individual instruments are to be used in the development of the assessments for the project. Attachments include: (1) recommendations of the Technical Panel; (2) the third report to the Steering Committee; and (3) an appendix that lists the instruments and presents their profiles. (SLD)
