Development and analysis of survey instruments to assess education leadership candidates’ dispositions.
As colleges of education are faced with NCATE requirements to assess dispositions in addition to knowledge and skills, preparation programs across the country are looking for ways to assess dispositions through reliable and valid measures. In this paper we describe the development of three survey instruments to assess dispositions of master’s degree Educational Leadership candidates. We began by using the disposition enumerated in the document developed as a companion piece to the 2008 national educational leadership policy standards (Council of Chief State School Officers, 2008a) titled Performance Expectations and Indicators for Education Leaders (Council of Chief State School Officers, 2008b).
