Why Should We Assess Social and Emotional Skills?
More and more, schools and afterschool programs are recognizing the importance of understanding their students’ social and emotional competencies. Systems like the DESSA Comprehensive SEL System can help education personnel make informed decisions about how best to support the social and emotional skills of their youth.
Aperture Education’s DESSA System provides research-based assessments, data-interpretation and implementation ideas, and growth strategies to help organizations implement successful social and emotional learning initiatives. As one of the only assessments for social and emotional learning validated through years of research, the DESSA System can provide your program with quantitative results to support your social and emotional learning outcomes.
