Measures of Deeper Learning / Measures of Social-Emotional Learning Research Project

Funded by Hewlett Foundation, SCALE seeked to learn:

1) how school staff, stakeholders, and students articulate the social-emotional competencies that are valued in their school contexts, and how those valued SEL competencies are developed and assessed/monitored;

2) whether objective evidence of students’ SEL competencies can be collected and analyzed to provide educators a way to monitor students' progress and make adjustments in their instruction/program;

3) whether the collected evidence of students' SEL competencies has a relationship with student outcomes valued by the school; and

4) the relationships among language development, social-emotional learning, and academic outcomes.
