Is the SLLA 6990 Hard to Pass?
The SLLA 6990 is a complex exam designed to measure the skills an entry-level school administrator needs to be competent in a school leadership position. The test is aligned with the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL).
While the test is for entry-level school administrators, it is a lengthy, difficult exam and will require you to be proficient in many areas of educational leadership. The test is scenario-based, meaning you will be required to read lengthy situational questions and then choose the best answer based on national standards in school leadership.
There are four constructed-response questions that will require you to write an essay in response to leadership scenarios where you will have to apply strategic leadership approaches to a variety of situations.
You will have four hours total to complete the exam. The test is timed separately for the selected-response and constructed-response sections. You will have 165 minutes to complete the selected-response section and 75 minutes to complete the constructed-response section.
There are 120 selected-response questions and four constructed-response questions. The seven content categories covered on the exam are:
- Strategic Leadership - 20 questions
- Instructional Leadership - 27 questions
- Climate and Cultural Leadership - 22 questions
- Ethical Leadership - 19 questions
- Organizational Leadership - 16 questions
- Community Engagement Leadership - 16 questions
- Analysis Constructed-Response - 4 questions
Perhaps the most difficult part of the exam is the writing portion. You will have to apply your knowledge of all the content categories assessed to four different scenarios. These questions often include large, complicated data sets you will evaluate to make leadership decisions.
But fear not! Our online course covers it all.
How many questions do I have to get right to pass the SLLA 6990?
It is difficult to predict exactly how many questions you must get correct to pass the SLLA 6990 because a scale score is used rather than a raw score. This means that your raw score–how many you got correct–is put into a formula to calculate a scale score.
To keep things simple, we recommend scoring at least a 75% on the practice tests before you go in to take the exam. Getting 75% of the questions correct when you practice indicates you are ready to take the actual test.
For the constructed-response portion of the exam, scoring gets more complicated. Constructed-response questions are scored by trained educational professionals. Two scorers will independently rate each of your written responses, and a third will weigh in if the two graders do not agree within one point. For the SLLA 6990 the constructed response section is worth 25% of your overall score.

Does the online course have the same questions as the exam?
While our online course aligned with the test, it is against testing policy to share items on the actual exam. State tests are secure, standardized, and heavily regulated.
There are hundreds of test questions in the item banks for each exam. When you take the exam, your version of the test will be different from other versions and will have questions randomly pulled from the item banks. This ensures test security, validity, and reliability. Trying to memorize what you think will be on your test is an exercise in futility. Instead, you should study the skills and content outlined in the specifications and blueprint of the exam.
Everything in our course is aligned with the test specifications and blueprint for the exam. That way, you can review how the test is designed and what skills are assessed. The questions in our study guide are structured similarly to what you will encounter on test day, but they are not the same exact questions on the real exam.
Is this the best resource for the SLLA 6990?
Obviously, we believe our SLLA online course is the very best resource you can purchase to prepare for the exam. There are hours of video tutorials for each part of the course and a comprehensive writing preparation section to help you pass the constructed-response portion of the test.
The course contains modules for each content category, and within those categories, we’ve aligned all of the information to the test specifications and blueprint. This ensures you are studying what you will see on test day–nothing more, nothing less.
In each section, there are practice items that align specifically with the skills you just studied, so you can see exactly what a question for that skill or content will be like on test day. In addition, we have detailed answer explanations for every question in our study guide.
The constructed-response section has eight writing prompts for you to practice with. We also include example essays you can reference and see what a thorough and complete essay looks like.
Does the online course come with practice tests?
Yes. There is a full-length practice test at the end of the study guide included in the course. There are also practice test questions at the end of each content category.
We also provide you with eight writing prompts and sample essays for the constructed-response section of the study guide.
All of the questions are categorized by skill and contain detailed answer explanations.
How long should I study for the SLLA 6990?
People have a range of skill levels when it comes to this test, so it is difficult for us to tell you exactly how long you need to study. Because this test covers an expansive amount of content, we recommend short, incremental practice over time. This is much better than cramming all your studying into one or two weekends. Using 20-30-minute study sessions over a 2-3 week period is ideal.
We also recommend you spend some time practicing your writing skills for this test.
What is the difference between Kathleen Jasper's SLLA YouTube videos and the online course?
Our YouTube channel is a great place to start. However, the course covers much more information and goes into greater detail than the YouTube videos. If you like our SLLA 6990 YouTube videos, you'll love the online course.
