Measure the effectiveness of your SEL program with the reliable reporting. Generate reports on individual students, classes, sites, programs, and district-wide. Compare settings and previous years to track progress over time. Real-time and practical, user-friendly reporting offers a reliable data analysis with important insights—quickly.

Student Reports

Generate reports on individual students and monitor progress over time with the social and emotional assessment tools in the DESSA System. The system includes individual progress monitoring and pre-intervention/post-intervention comparison reporting. You’ll draw accurate conclusions about your student’s growth over time or after implementing lessons and interventions.

Classroom reports

Evaluate the social and emotional strengths and needs of your class as a whole through a group report. Or view the status of select students at one time through a combined student report.

Site Reports

View the social and emotional strengths and needs of students across grades through site reporting. The DESSA System allows administrators make important decisions based on the reporting generated by the system. Evaluate an SEL program using key information that informs the long-term objectives for your entire program or school.

Program Data Exports

Export student data into a downloadable spreadsheet with the option to filter results based on specific assessments from selected time periods. With this data, the ability to conduct advanced analytics or provide key inputs for other educational systems is user friendly and informative.

Custom Reporting

The DESSA System provides several reporting features to support students, classrooms, sites, and program/district-wide. For more information on our basic report, download a sample completed report here.

Although our standard reports are an excellent baseline, sometimes schools need reporting features tailored for their specific needs. For situations like these, Aperture Education can provide customized reporting. Contact us for more information about customized reporting.


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.

Experience the ease of universal screening supported by an integrated cloud-based platform.

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.
