STUDENT SELF-ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENT

This instrument has been designed as a tool for the students of the University of Arizona Master of
Education and Post-Degree Principal Certification program in Educational Leadership to assess their
growth and mastery of the 2008 Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards for
School Leaders adopted by the National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NPBEA). The
ISLLC Standards for School Leaders are intended to improve educational administration and practice by
guiding models of preparation and professional development of educational leaders. The ISLLC
Standards for School Leaders provide a broad conceptual statement, followed by specific Functions that
explain and enhance the relevance of each Standard statement.

Each administrative candidate is expected to engage in the self-assessment at least three times
throughout their program, 1) at the beginning of their coursework; 2) just prior to the Internship
experience, and 3) at the conclusion of their program. Results of each self-assessment are to be shared
with the College supervisor and/or advisor, and are used to provide focus and establish emphasis for the
student on areas of need during coursework and the Internship. They are to then be placed in the
students portfolio, documenting growth and progress in demonstrating mastery of the students capacity
for success in educational leadership.

Directions to the Student:

1. As you consider your level of mastery of each Standard for School Leaders Function, you
are encouraged to reflect openly and honestly about how you currently perceive your placement
on this rubric. When you have made a decision about your current level of mastery, identify (in
the final column) the evidence you will provide to verify your determination of current placement.
If you are at the beginning of your coursework, your instructor in Foundations of Educational
Leadership will assist you in understanding the relationship between the required and elective
coursework and mastery of the Standards. Each Self-Assessment should be placed in your
portfolio, documenting your journey toward mastery and excellence in educational
leadership.

2. Upon completion of the Application for Internship, and successful acceptance to advance
to the Internship, you are expected to meet with your University Internship Supervisor to discuss
how the results of Self-Assessment 2 can and should guide and contribute to your Internship
Plan. Documentation on this Self-Assessment 2 should reflect the growth you have experienced
throughout your coursework and field experiences, and reflect additional areas that still will
require work.

3. At the conclusion of the Internship, you will complete Self-Assessment 3, providing


specific evidence (products, projects, actions, activities) that resulted from the Internship and
contributed directly to your mastery of the Standard indicators. Be prepared to discuss with your
site principal supervisor, as well as your University Internship Supervisor, the growth in mastery
you have demonstrated and significant event that contributed most to your personal growth as an
educational leader.

Explanation of Rubric Criterion

Exceeds Expectations 4 means that you have consistently demonstrated mastery of


this indicator and can provide artifacts, assessment results, and other evidence of your
demonstrated mastery.
Meets Expectations 3 is considered as the base level for demonstration of
mastery. This means that you can provide artifacts, assessment results, and other evidence that
your performance relative to this indicator is satisfactory. This score point is critical to successful
completion of the Internship experience. Your Internship is not considered complete until you
have demonstrated mastery of each indicator on this assessment instrument to a score point of
3 with sufficient evidence to support your claim.
Approaches Expectations 2 describes the beginning demonstrations of mastery
or competence with this indicator. You may demonstrate this indicator inconsistently or not be
able to provide sufficient evidence as yet of mastery in terms of artifacts, assessment results, or
other measures of success pertaining to this indicator.
Does Not Meet Expectations 1 means that you have not engaged in study or work
relative to this indicator as yet, or that you have not had success in providing evidence of mastery
for this indicator.
