A Comparison of Self-Assessment and Peer Assessment of Leadership Skills

Cathryn G. Turrentine

Members of a residential leadership community reported whether they had practiced specific leadership skills in the preceding semester and, if so, how well they believed they had performed on that skill. Results were compared with the responses of peer observers. Self-reports of leadership practices were confirmed by peer reports in 72% of cases. Self-assessments of the quality of performance were confirmed by peer assessments in 83% of cases.
