Announcement pertaining to the Florida Educational Leadership Exam (FELE)
This is to inform you of the implementation of the new Florida Educational Leadership Examination (FELE) 3.0. The revised competencies and skills reflect an alignment to the revised Florida Principal Leadership Standards, Rule 6A-5.080, Florida Administrative Code.
Revisions to the competencies and skills necessitated content changes across all three current FELE subtests resulting in a new examination, FELE 3.0. The new examination will follow the same format as the current FELE (three subtests and a written performance assessment on the third subtest). Test development activities for the FELE 3.0 have focused on increased rigor and cognitive complexity with a written performance assessment that reflects real-world applications required of a school building administrator.
The current version of the FELE will no longer be administered after December 31, 2013. Subsequently, all examinees who do not pass all three subtests of the current FELE by this date will be required to take and pass the FELE 3.0 in its entirety beginning January 2014.
Once test administration begins for the FELE 3.0 in January 2014, the department will collect administration data prior to holding a standard-setting meeting in April 2014. Pending approval of the State Board of Education, the department is planning to implement the new passing scores effective September 2014.
