A meaningful measure of a teacher-leader candidate’s readiness and ability to provide effective instructional leadership
ETS is pleased to introduce the ETS® Performance Assessment for Teacher Leaders (PATL). The PATL measures against the critical leadership roles that teachers play in contributing to student and school success.
Registration and Submission
Test takers register online and submit tasks in an online submission system by entering a written response and uploading associated documentation, called artifacts. A textbox is provided to enter responses. Test takers are expected to write descriptively, analytically and reflectively.
The content of the assessment addresses teacher leader Model Standards. Each task is developed to assess a test taker’s skills and abilities in a specific area of classroom instruction. For specific details on each of the six tasks and rubrics used to score them, review the information below.
Task 1 – Adult Learning and the Collaborative Culture
Task 2 – Research for the Improvement of Practice
Task 3 – Professional Learning
Task 4 – Observation and Use of Assessment Data
Task 5 – Collaboration with Families and the Community
Task 6 – Collaborative Teams and Advocacy
Scores are reported online approximately six weeks after the task deadline to test takers and educator preparation programs.
