26 SES 12 B, Feedback and Coaching to Promote Professional Reflection and Learning of School Leaders
Self-assessments or inventories and assessment-based feedback based on psychometric tests have proven an important learning approach and one that creates additional opportunities for improving one’s own practice. Besides psychometric properties, a very important factor in the usefulness of such an inventory is its social validity. How is the tool accepted? What do participants expect of an online inventory and were their expectations met? What is the impact of completing the inventory, reading and working with the feedback report on self-reflection and learning, personal growth and actions taken to improve school leadership practices? Despite their benefits, such tools are generally under-utilised in the educational sector, particularly in most of the European countries. This paper discusses the use of the CPSM online-based inventory for education leaders which is based on a competence model comprising two areas explicated in 29 competence dimensions. Statistical data about the competence measurements as well as findings from the follow-up survey and explanative conducted interviews will be presented. Findings show that the use of the inventory in preparation and continuous professional development programmes for 2500 school leadership personnel in the participating 12 countries yields promising results.
