An assessment for hiring school principals and school administrators.
Purpose: The principal assessment identifies candidates with strong leadership talent who can manage the work of others to reach challenging goals, inspire school staff, parents, and the community, and strategize a positive future for the school.
An effective principal will also work collaboratively to produce innovative solutions, and build effective alliances with key constituents. The principal assessment also identifies people with strong mental abilities who can handle a large fund of information and make decisions based on complex factors.

• 171-question personality inventory.
