Universal Screening

Screen students in under a minute using the DESSA-mini, a reliable snapshot assessment of a student’s SEL competency that’s easy to complete for educators, out-of-school time providers, and parents.

Screen Your Students. Inform Your Strategies.

The DESSA-mini’s precision is nearly equivalent to the full DESSA, according to a 2011 study. Using the DESSA System, teachers can administer the DESSA-mini in under a minute per student and have its information stored virtually for easy dissemination.

Identify Students with Needs

Once the DESSA-mini has been completed, the DESSA System will interpret the results and reveal which students have social and emotional strengths. You’ll also identify which students have social-emotional difficulties that require further assessment with the DESSA. In addition, use the DESSA System to quickly generate reports. The software helps you understand the progress of individual students and the entire class.

Assess for SEL Competencies

Analyze the results of your DESSA-mini assessment to identify students who would benefit from a DESSA (72 item) assessment. Pinpoint at-risk students and administer the full-length DESSA to those who need it most.
