One of the most intimidating sections of the Florida Educational Leadership Exam is the FELE written response.  However, with some coaching from your friends at FELE Prep, you can pass the first time!  Our next series of articles will offer some tips to help you achieve a high score on the FELE written response.  Let’s take a look:

Take Time to Comprehend All of the Data

Be careful not to rush through the data.  Take time to read it and analyze it; be sure to record the trends and specific changes on the laminated sheet provided. The FELE written response will be scored based on how well you understand and can explain this data.  Data need to be explained thoroughly and correctly with all trends noted.  Specific examples of gains and losses should be cited.

Make Sure You Clearly Establish the Topic

A weak introduction can set you up for failure.  Your FELE written response should include a strong beginning where the writer clearly establishes the topic, and the purpose of the writing is introduced.

Organize and Avoid Errors

There should be a brief introduction, content with data analysis and recommendations that correlate with data trends, and a short closing.  There should be transitions among the paragraphs or sections.  The writer should also use superior grammar and syntax.

Our next article will describe more tips to consider when crafting your FELE written response.  There are sample written responses in FELE Prep’s materials.

FELE test prep

If you are planning to take the Florida Educational Leadership Exam, you may have heard that the questions in each subtest are categorized by complexity.  It is important to understand what this means and how the questions in each category are structured so you can develop an effective FELE test prep strategy to tackle each question.  Let’s take a closer look at the three test question categories:

Low Complexity

This is most likely going to be a closed question requiring you to do one of the following:

  • Provide a brief response
  • Solve a simple problem
  • Identify facts, theories, or units of measurement
  • Select a definition

Moderate Complexity

Moderate complexity questions will often require you to analyze specific problems, apply theories and require more in-depth responses.

High Complexity

These questions are designed to assess how you will respond to specific scenarios. You will need to carefully analyze the situation and provide a valid, thoughtful solution that applies appropriate theories and aligns with approved problem solving strategies.
