Overview

Strong Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills and a sense of resiliency can help students be more successful in school and endure tough times, but how can you easily identify and assess which students need more help in developing these skills? In part 2 of this 4-part series, join Paul LeBuffe as he goes in depth about the need to assess SEL skills, stressing formative assessment. He'll explain why children who have strong social and emotional skills perform better in school and provide an understanding of what to look for in any assessment to get clues about the resilience of a child. Paul will also introduce you to a 72-item SEL assessment - The Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) - and a universal screener, DESSA-Mini. He will also review how to interpret the assessment results.

The DESSA is very interesting. I know it is important to measure SEL skills but the reality of implementing this is overwhelming considering the focus on standardized testing.

This program would be hard to implement in a public school because of time constraints and focus on teaching Common Core.
