Preparing for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam is much like preparing for any standardized test.  As educators, we are knowledgeable in helping students prepare for tests and exams.  However, these strategies are often easier to discuss with our students than apply ourselves. 

FELE Prep understands how challenging the Florida Educational Leadership Exam can be, which is why we have developed a comprehensive set of FELE resources to help you succeed.  Some of these Florida FELE resources include FELE study materials (i.e. self-study review guides, FELE flashcards, etc.), FELE written response / FELE essay examples, FELE practice questions, FELE tutoring and our FELE prep course/FELE seminars.

We discussed test taking tips in a previous article.  This article will focus on FELE test prep tips to keep in mind as you prepare for the exam:

Plan a FELE Test Prep Strategy

Just like you would with any large project, consider outlining a formal FELE test prep strategy.  You should give yourself several months to study for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam as learning and reviewing the material over a longer period of time is generally more effective.  Decide on which FELE resources you plan to utilize and come up with a realistic study routine and timeline.  For instance, you may want to immerse yourself in FELE study materials, FELE written response / FELE essay examples, and FELE practice questions during the course of your entire study plan.  You may then want to augment these with a FELE test prep course/FELE seminar and perhaps even some FELE tutoring.  You may also decide to utilize FELE flashcards a few weeks prior to the exam.  The key is developing a FELE test prep strategy that works for you.

Keep Studying

The more you study and immerse yourself in the FELE test prep materials, the more familiar you will be with both the test format and content you will need to know to pass all three FELE subtests.

Have Confidence in Yourself

Most importantly, have confidence in yourself.  Half the battle of passing any standardized test is having the confidence that you can and will succeed!

FELE Resources

The Florida FELE (Florida Educational Leadership Exam) is required for anyone seeking to become a school administrator in the state.  FELE Prep offers numerous FELE resources to help candidates prepare for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.  We are often asked which FELE resources a candidate should consider. The answer is different for each individual.  Let’s take a look at some factors that impact which Florida FELE resources are best suited for you:

Visual or Auditory Learner?

Your learning style can help you determine which Florida FELE resources to consider.  If you are a visual learner, our self-study guides may be most beneficial.  Our downloadable review guides include FELE essay examples, FELE practice questions and test taking strategies for each of the subtests.

If you are more of an auditory learner, you may want to complement these self-study guides with one of our FELE seminars. FELE flashcards are also a great resource for auditory learners because a friend or family member can use them to help quiz you on key terms and theorists.

Self, Group or One-On-One?

Our Florida FELE resources include options for self, group or one-on-one preparation.  If you find independent studying to be most beneficial, then our FELE self-study guides that include FELE essay examples and FELE practice questions may be all you need. 

If you work better in a group setting, you can complement the self-study guides with one of our FELE seminars, which is essentially a one-day intensive FELE prep course.  During this FELE prep course, we work on FELE practice questions and also cover the written performance section of the test, including going over FELE essay examples and discussing how to formulate a passing FELE written response.

If one-on-one preparation works best for you, then our FELE tutoring via Skype may be an option to consider.  FELE tutoring sessions are conducted by Dr. Lynette Fields and cover much of the same material as the FELE prep course, including going through the self-study guides and discussing how to prepare a passing FELE written response for the essay portion of the exam.

Whatever your learning style, FELE Prep has proven FELE resources to help you prepare for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.  Give us a call to learn more.

Anyone seeking to become a school administrator in the state of Florida must pass the  Florida Educational Leadership Exam (FELE).  Just like any standardized test, there are certain strategies you can use to help improve your performance on the FELE.

Read the Entire Question

Although this might seem obvious, sometimes the anxiety or excitement of taking the FELE can result in not reading the entire question.  Try to remain composed and read each question and answer all the way through before making your choice.

Eliminate Answers You Know Are Incorrect

Taking answers you know are incorrect off the table helps ease some anxiety.  Once you narrow down the choices that are obviously incorrect, then look for clues within the remaining selections that will help lead you to the answer.

Consider Your First Impression

In many cases, your first impression is the correct answer. Test anxiety can sometimes lead to over analysis.  Don’t overanalyze and try to go with your gut.

FELE Prep provides a full line of resources to help you prepare for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam. We offer FELE test prep book modules for each individual subtest which includes a FELE practice test. We also have FELE writing examples / FELE writing tips to help you with the written portion of the exam. FELE flashcards complement the FELE test prep book modules and quiz you on key terms and theorists.

If you prefer more hands-on preparation, consider our FELE seminars or FELE tutoring via Skype.  Our FELE seminars are limited to 8-12 students and are facilitated by Dr. Lynette Fields. FELE tutoring via Skype is a one-on-one session with Dr. Fields. Both options utilize the FELE test prep book / modules for the subtests.  We also go over FELE writing tips and FELE writing examples and take a FELE practice test.  

If you are planning to take the Florida Educational Leadership Exam, FELE Prep is your one-stop resource for all of your FELE test prep needs. We look forward to helping you succeed!

Let’s take a look at how the Florida Educational Leadership Exam is scored.  There are three sections you must pass:  FELE Subtest 1, FELE Subtest 2 and FELE Subtest 3, which now includes both a multiple choice section and a written performance section. 

FELE scores are scaled, meaning that your raw score (total number of correct answers) is converted to allow multiple forms of the test to share a minimum passing score.  You must achieve a scaled score of at least 200 to pass Subtest 1 and Subtest 2.  The requirement to pass Subtest 3 is a minimum scaled score of 200 on the multiple choice section and seven out of 12 points on the written performance section. 

Remember, you need to pass all three sections of the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.  We’ve broken out our FELE study materials to address each of the different FELE Subtests. Let’s take a look at some of the Florida Educational Leadership Exam study guide resources available through FELE Prep:

FELE Seminars

We will be taking time over the next few months to highlight the different resources we offer to help you prepare for the Florida Education Leadership Exam.  This month, our feature service is FELE seminars.

Our FELE seminars, a.k.a. FELE workshops, offer a collaborative approach to preparing for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.  Let’s look at some key features:

Class Size

Our intensive, one-day FELE seminars accommodate eight to ten people.  We keep the class size small enough for personalized attention, but large enough for group collaboration.  When it comes to preparing for the FELE test, we find there are many students who prefer to prepare within a collaborative environment.

FELE Exam Study Guide

Each student is provided with our FELE Exam Study Guide.  All four of our FELE test preparation modules (FELE subtest 1 study guide, FELE subtest 2 study guide, FELE subtest 3 study guide, FELE test information and test taking strategies) are included in the FELE Exam Study Guide.

FELE Practice Test

FELE practice tests are included in each study guide.  Candidates are encouraged to attend the FELE seminar, study, and then take the FELE practice test to determine areas of strength and weakness.

Some of our new clients are students who did not pass the Florida Educational Leadership Exam the first time around. Many of these students admit that they did not properly prepare for the FELE test and therefore did not exactly know what to expect. If you are planning to take the Florida Educational Leadership Exam in the near future, below are some reasons to consider taking proper time to prepare:

  1. The Florida Educational Leadership Exam is tougher than ever before.
    The Florida Educational Leadership Exam was made more rigorous back in 2014, causing the failure rate to increase.  Incorporating a FELE exam study guide and FELE practice test into your FELE test preparation strategy drastically enhances your chances to pass it the first time.
  1. Those who don’t prepare at all tend to fail one or more of the subtests.
    Just like with any standardize test, students who do not prepare tend to fail part or all of the FELE test.  Resources including the FELE exam study guide, FELE flashcards and FELE writing examples are all excellent tools to help boost your chances of passing the first time around.
  1. Taking the FELE test over delays your career aspirations and costs more money.
    Not passing all or part of the FELE test means you will need to re-take the areas you failed.  Not only does this cost additional money, but it also delays your career goals and plans.  Investing up front in FELE test resources such as a FELE exam study guide, FELE practice test, FELE seminars and even a FELE tutor can save you time, money and headaches in the future!
