About the PATL Assessment

The PATL assessment measures the critical leadership roles that teachers play in contributing to student and school success. The assessment measures leadership roles in six areas, called tasks, which are scored according to task-specific rubrics. Each task addresses specific standards within the Teacher Leader Model Standards (PDF).

If you’re a currently certified and practicing teacher who’s seeking advanced credentials, you’re eligible to take the PATL assessment.
