SEL assessment is the foundation of effective instruction and student learning.
SEL assessments allow educators to explore where their students have been, where they are, and where they might go if we don’t intervene. Tracking student progress across the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL’s) Competencies is key to identifying and responding to student needs. By having both recurring and accurate assessment data, school leaders can guide their staff with implementing effective interventions. With Satchel Pulse, you can utilize a variety of features to not only make the SEL assessment process seamless, but to actively grow toward your goals.

Boosts academic success
Developing a strong SEL program improves the academic performance of students. Research shows that SEL can raise achievement scores by an average of 11 percentile points.
Reduces behavior problems
Social and emotional learning promotes prosocial, responsible behaviors and decreases risky behaviors and conduct problems both in and out of the classroom.
Promotes positive mental health
Promoting healthy relationships, emotionally safe environments, and social and emotional development cultivates essential protective factors against mental health risks.

The survey took very little time and the interface was student friendly. The students especially liked using the sliding scale with the different faces instead of numbers or words, that made it easier for them.
