The Accelerated School Administrator Program (ASAP®) has been conducting school leadership academies for over 10 years. The program is customized to the needs of each district or state, using elements in a blended program format with many unique features that distinguish it from typical district programs. The ASAP Academy combines initial Educational Leadership Assessments of individual capacities, personal interviews, and a “Decision Making and Prioritization Skills Assessment,” which provides each candidate with a number of crisis scenarios during a simulated school day, and a condensed time frame in which to formulate reactions and responses. This creates a rich dataset from which to build individual learning plans, team goals and activities, and components of school team involvement in the school improvement planning process.

Online assessments and exams are becoming a common tool for standards-based professional development and professional certification. For many reasons, people commonly consider multiple choice exams easier than essay exams, perhaps because the correct answer is guaranteed to be among the possible responses. In reality, well-designed multiple choice exams are often more difficult because, by their very nature, they force the learner to be familiar with a much broader range of material and require the learner to have a greater familiarity with the standards and competencies of their profession.
Now, ASAP offers a free learning content module, Important Strategies for Multiple Choice Assessments to assist learners in studying for, practicing and mastering online multiple choice assessments.
