Performance Assessment for Leaders

In 2012, Massachusetts school, district, and state education leaders began work with Bank Street’s team of national leadership and performance assessment experts to design and develop a new assessment system as part of the commonwealth’s principal preparation and licensure process. Unlike standard paper and pencil tests, the Massachusetts Performance Assessment for Leaders consists of performance assessment tasks that core, authentic work of school leaders.

Drawing from the same philosophy and experience infusing Bank Street’s leadership degree programs, the Massachusetts performance assessment system is designed to ensure that new principals are prepared to effectively lead their schools for the true benefit of their students.
