Research week at WKU: Presentation on "Making School Intellectually Stimulating & Personally Engaging"
One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student's Assessment of School

Free SLLA test prep session returning to WKU in April

My WKU colleague, Dr. Mike Putnam, will be reprising his hugely popular test prep session for the School Leaders Licensure Assessment (SLLA), required of all aspiring school principals in Kentucky and many other states.  The session will be held on Saturday, April 27, from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. Central time, continuing on Sunday, April 28, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Gary Ransdell Hall Room 3096 on WKU's main campus.  There is no charge for the session.  Participants are asked to pay $25 for access to online materials (see note below).

The next round of SLLA testing will be the week of April 29 through May 4 at a cost of $425.

Dr. Putnam developed this test review with Dr. Dennis Bunch of the University of Mississippi.  Kentucky currently has a passing cut score of 160 on the SLLA.  Previous prep sessions at WKU have resulted in a 100 percent pass rate for participants.

The session will include a review of the six ISLLC standards upon which the SLLA is based, and feature timed test prep exercises and hands-on activities and discussions.  Participants must agree to confidentially share their SLLA test score results with Dr. Putnam, as he and Dr. Bunch use this data to continue refining the test prep process and may publish an analysis of results in the future.

Contact Dr. Putnam at [email protected] by end of the day on April 17 to register.  Space is limited and late registrations are not permitted.

Note: Dr. Putnam will be utilizing his new online SLLA preparation book, which is slated for publication on April 15.  If publication is delayed, print materials will be supplied free to all attendees.
