Editorial Reviews

Richard A. Flanary
Preparing for the School Leaders Licensure Examination? Passing the Leadership Test: Strategies for Success on the Leadership Licensure Exam is a valuable resource as you engage in the due diligence necessary to fully prepare for the exam. Understanding the SLLA's foundation and design is critical to your preparation. A review of the Educational Leadership Policy Standards: ISLLC 2008 provides you with an increased foundational understanding. The components of the exam are explained in detail along with sample vignettes and scoring rubrics. The SLLC primer combined with test-taking tips and considerations make this book a must-read.
Deborah Bordelon
Both potential and current educational leaders will find Passing the Leadership Test: Strategies for Mastering the Leadership Licensure Assessment a valuable tool. The authors offer an interactive, personal and systematic approach for preparing for the SLLA. Though the focus is test preparation, the real-world scenarios and connection to the ISLLC standards make this material relevant for leaders at all stages in their careers.
Annette Breaux
Quite simply, [this book] provides the reader with a blueprint for passing the ISLLC examination. In addition, this book will benefit any educator serving in a leadership role, and I will recommend it as such.
Joanne Matthews
This is a phenomenal publication that serves many purposes. Classroom teachers, principals, and other educators can benefit from Parts I and II; and there are numerous benefits of Part II for individuals in Educational Leadership. The discussion of the standards is so important to the work that school leaders must do for this time.
