The Florida Educational Leadership Exam is a challenging test, but there are some tips and tricks you can use to help you as you work through each section. Our next series of articles will offer strategies to help you navigate through the multiple choice portions of the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.

Read the Question Slowly and All the Way Through

It is important to read each question slowly and thoroughly, multiple times if necessary. Sometimes nerves or reading quickly can cause you to miss or gloss over a word or something that changes the context of the question. Take your time and if you need to, whisper the question as you read it.  You may also want to underline certain words that can change the context of the questions (i.e., not, never, always, etc.). This will help ensure you completely understand what is being asked.

Answer the Question Before Looking at the Choices

While it is tempting to look at the multiple choice answers, try to first answer the question before reviewing the possible answer. This can further help you identify the correct multiple choice answer.

Our next article will cover more tips to help you with the multiple choice sections of the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.

Preparing for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam

Once you are able to wrap your head around some of the concepts, strategies, and tools available, you will likely feel more comfortable and confident in your preparation efforts.

Our previous article covered the importance of taking time to evaluate your competencies and understanding what is expected in each subtest. Let’s take a look at two more ways you can begin to prepare for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.

Develop a Study Plan

Developing a study plan and study schedule early on can help ensure you have the time and resources to properly prepare for the FELE.  Make an effort to write out a plan and set aside a certain amount of study / review time each day or each week.  This will help ease some of the stress associated with taking the FELE and also help prevent the need to “cram” right before the test.

Take Your Time

Don’t rush through the FELE exam.  You don’t want to overanalyze the questions, but at the same time, be sure to read each question thoroughly before choosing your answer. Try to not pay any attention to others around you as that can contribute to anxiety.  Also, while continually watching the clock can cause anxiety, you do want to glance at it every so often to make sure you are on pace to complete the exam.

Breathe!

Taking a series of slow, deep breaths can help calm your nerves and put you in the right frame of mind to take the test. Consider doing this before you leave home and then again once you arrive at the testing site. There are also smart phone and smart watch apps that can guide you through breathing exercises.

While taking any exam can be nerve wracking, it should be of some comfort to know there are strategies you can use to help calm your nerves and reduce test anxiety. And, when it comes to preparing for the Florida Educational Leadership Exam, FELE Prep definitely has you covered.  We provide comprehensive FELE exam study guide materials with FELE practice questions to help you prepare for each subtest.

Reframe Your Mind

A positive attitude in itself can help keep anxiety at bay.  You’ve done your due diligence by completing your FELE test prep. Have confidence in yourself and your knowledge and understanding of the material. If you begin to feel anxious, consider adding some mindfulness exercises to help calm your nerves.

Arrive Early

Arriving to the Florida Educational Leadership Exam testing site early helps you not feel so rushed, thus reducing test anxiety.  Be sure to have everything you need to take with you ready the evening before so you can just grab it and head out the door.  Consider leaving at least 10 minutes earlier than you normally would to account for traffic, construction, or other possible delays along the way.

Get Some Sleep

We tend to be more anxious when we are tired. Be sure to get plenty of rest during the week before you take the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.  You will then want to make sure you get a full night of quality sleep the evening before the exam.  Cramming for a test is never a good idea so try to plan your schedule where you can get plenty of FELE test prep and sleep in leading up to the exam.

Eat a Nutritious Meal

Hunger can cause some people to become uncomfortable and anxious, so be sure to eat a healthy meal before the exam.  Heavy meals with a lot of fats and sugars are not recommended as they can make you tired, so strive to eat something on the healthy side such as lean meats, fruits, nuts, and vegetables prior to taking the Florida Educational Leadership Exam.

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.
