Measuring Elementary School Students' Social and Emotional Skills

A newly released report by Child trends identifies 5 groups of social emotional skills and provides educators with tools to measure and monitor social and emotional skills that lead to academic success.  The skills are: Self-control; Persistence; Mastery Orientation; Academic Self-Efficacy; and Social Competence.  The report recommends measuring these skills with either teacher and/or student surveys.  They provide the surveys in at Appendices and scoring guides.  I plan to use the student survey with all my grade 3-5 students this fall.  I highly recommend you download this report at http://www.childtrends.org/
