Educators use assessment data to guide instruction every single day. They formally and informally assess academic skills like reading and math, use the assessment results to gauge students’ level of competence, and fine-tune instruction to their current level of proficiency.
When it comes to social and emotional learning, it can be harder for educators to use SEL assessment data to guide their social and emotional practice. High-quality SEL assessment data can help educators understand their students and make decisions about what to teach, and to whom at what point.
The SEL arena is wide and diverse with many schools already collecting vital data points. In this session, we will look at SEL data, how it is being collected and most importantly, how the visualisation of data can help create insights to drive actions. If data is not visualised in an accessible way, it will not yield insights, and then such an assessment is just another cost and waste of time. Absent some useful information from the data, assessment cannot do any good.
