The objectives of this research were to 1) study the future innovator and entrepreneur components of students, 2) study the future innovator and entrepreneur creator components of school administrators, and 3) develop assessment tools for innovator and entrepreneur creator competencies for new generation school administrators. An explanatory sequential mixed-methods design was adopted in the following three phases. In the first phase, data were collected with 1,019 secondary school students through survey questionnaires. Fourteen experts were interviewed using semi-structured interviews in the second phase, and five experts were asked using feasibility and suitability evaluation forms in the third phase. Data were analyzed using the arithmetic mean, standard deviation, and exploratory factor analysis in the first phase; frequency and content analysis in the second phase; and arithmetic mean, power of discrimination, and reliability coefficients in the third phase. The results revealed that
1) students' future innovator and entrepreneur components consisted of nine components as follows: questioning, observing, obsessive note-taker, apophenia, pursue multiple streams, idea networking, experimenting, innovative entrepreneurial leadership, and social, environmental, and economic responsibility and sustainability (SEERS); 2) school administrators’ future innovator and entrepreneur creator components comprised three competency categories as follows: innovators and entrepreneur, learner development, and leading the innovative organization; and 3) assessment tools for innovator and entrepreneur creator competencies for the new generation school administrators consisted of three tools as follows: an assessment questionnaire for the school administrators’ future innovator and entrepreneur creator competencies, a simulation test for the Learner Development competencies, and a simulation test for the innovative organization leading competencies.
