Rosch and Schwartz of the Illinois Leadership Center round out our focus on the assessment of leadership development with their article, “Potential Issues and Pitfalls in Outcomes Assessment in Leadership Education.” The authors pinpoint several common mistakes leadership educators are liable to make when assessing their programs and activities. These mistakes include: Honeymoon, Horizon, Hollywood, Halo, and Hallmark effects (a.k.a, recency, response-shift, socially desirable, and respondent biases). The authors provide a description of each and suggestions for practitioners on how to avoid them. Rosch and Schwartz conclude by suggesting that achieving assessment validity in leadership education is not only necessary but also achievable.
