Introducing the ETS® Performance Assessment for School Leaders (PASL)

Starting in spring 2018, school leadership candidates required to submit a performance assessment now have another assessment choice — the ETS® Performance Assessment for School Leaders (PASL).

The PASL assessment allows you to demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills identified as relevant and important for beginning school leaders.

The assessment contains three tasks requiring written commentary and submission of required documents called artifacts. A video of you facilitating a collaborative team during your internship experience is required as one of the components for Task 3. Task responses can be created throughout your clinical experience rather than at the end, allowing you to continually refine your professional practice.

You will complete tasks by entering and submitting a written response and uploading artifacts via an online submission system. Within the online system, you can:

  • enter a written response to each task
  • link the required documents and artifacts to the written response
  • upload the required video
  • and edit, save, delete and change responses up until submission

Tasks must be submitted on or before the task submission deadline date.
