Why Do I Need to Take the Florida Educational Leadership Exam?

Leadership is perhaps the most crucial aspect of any organization, and it is especially important for schools. The role of a school leader is to manage and guide the school community towards educational success. The Florida Educational Leadership Exam is designed to test an individual’s ability to successfully lead a school. Passing the exam is a crucial step towards obtaining a Florida Educational Leadership Certificate and taking on leadership roles in the Florida public school system.

Understanding the Florida Educational Leadership Exam

The Florida Educational Leadership Exam, also known as the FELE, is an exam designed by the Florida Department of Education to evaluate the leadership skills of individuals aspiring to become educational leaders. The exam is divided into three subtests:

Subtest 1: Leadership for Student Learning

Subtest 2: Organizational Development

Subtest 3: Systems Leadership/FELE Written Response

Each subtest assesses different aspects of leadership skills necessary for success in school leadership positions. Our next article will discuss why it is important to pass the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.

FELE Prep is owned and operated by Dr. Lynette Fields, a 30+ year veteran of the Florida public school system. Dr. Fields develops high quality and effective FELE test prep resources (i.e., FELE flashcards, FELE seminars, FELE tutoring) and FELE exam study guide materials to help candidates prepare for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam. FELE exam study guide materials for each subtest include FELE practice questions. Dr. Fields also offers FELE writing tips to help you prepare for the FELE written response.

Less Than Perfect is OK!

We are concluding our series of articles discussing various ways to let go of perfectionism, especially as you prepare to take the Florida Educational Leadership Exam. Our previous articles discussed how it is important to remember that you do not need to score 100% to pass the Florida Educational Leadership Exam. We also discussed the importance of having confidence in the FELE test prep strategies you engaged in, remembering times when you’ve succeeded at passing other standardized tests, not giving the Florida Educational Leadership Exam power over you, and not “what if’ing” yourself to death. Today, we will look at one more FELE test prep tip to combat the plague of perfectionism.

Tip #6

Visualize Yourself Passing the Florida Educational Leadership Exam

Visualizing success is a powerful way to not only help you relax, but also can assist you in not feeling the pressure of perfectionism. As you embark on FELE test prep strategies, take time to close your eyes, breathe, and imagine yourself in a place where you’ve already passed the exam. Also, plan to do this the morning of the Florida Educational Leadership Exam and before you begin actually taking the test.

FELE Prep is a premier provider of FELE test prep resources including FELE exam study guide materials, FELE flashcards, FELE seminars, and FELE tutoring. Our FELE exam study guide materials for Subtest 1, Subtest 2, and Subtest 3 include FELE practice questions. We also offer FELE writing tips to help you prepare for the FELE written response. Give us a call to check out our comprehensive FELE test prep resources on our website today!

 

We are continuing our series of articles designed to help you combat perfectionism as you embark on taking the Florida Educational Leadership Exam. Today we will offer another strategy, but let’s recap some of the tips we’ve discussed in previous articles:

  • You don’t have to score 100% to pass
  • Have confidence in what you’ve studied
  • Remember past successes
  • Don’t give the Florida Educational Leadership Exam power over you

Tip #5:

Don’t “What If” Yourself

This is actually a strategy that can be applied to reduce anxiety in daily life in general. The “what if’s” will get you in trouble almost every time, so stop doing it! “What if” I fail; “What if” I forget all of my FELE test prep strategies, “What if” I wake up late and cannot take the test; “What if” I am sick the morning of the test; “What if” I freeze up and cannot remember anything; “What if”, “What if”, “What if”….. You can literally “What if” yourself to the point that you have so much anxiety that some of these things end up happening as a result! So, relax and don’t “What if” yourself. And, if you must “What if”, then concentrate on positives:

  • “What if” I wake up feeling energized and ready to tackle the FELE
  • “What if” the FELE exam study guide materials have prepared me and I am able to answer the questions?
  • “What if” the FELE written response is not as difficult as I had envisioned?
  • “What if” I pass the Florida Educational Leadership Exam and can move forward in my career!

Our previous articles covered some ways to help you re-think how you approach the FELE, including having confidence in your preparation for the exam and remembering past successes.

Tip #4:

Don’t Give the FELE Power Over You

Remember, YOU are in control! Don’t let the Florida Educational Leadership Exam control your thoughts, behaviors, or focus. Test anxiety and obsession can lead to you believing you have to achieve a perfect score. Again, going back to avoiding our first pitfall of perfectionism, always keep in mind that you don’t have to achieve a perfect score to pass the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.

We are continuing our series discussing some ways you can avoid the pitfalls of perfectionism when taking the Florida Educational Leadership Exam. We’ve covered how it is important to understand that you do not have to achieve a perfect score to pass the Florida Educational Leadership Exam, so there is no need to put pressure on yourself to do so. We also discussed having confidence in what you’ve studied during the FELE test prep process. Today, we will cover another helpful tip to help you avoid the pitfalls of perfectionism.

Tip #3 Remember Past Successes

One way to take the edge off is to recall some of your past successes. Specifically try to recall times where you still found success even though you were not perfect. Perfectionists tend to equate success with being perfect, but some of the most successful people in their fields are imperfect. Remember, most Olympians who win gold medals do so with a high score, but not a perfect score. You don’t have to be perfect to pass!
