Why It Is Imperative to Assess Social Emotional Learning Noncognitive Skills
Helping students develop noncognitive strengths is something nearly every teacher addresses daily.
Increasingly schools, districts, networks and states are upping the ante for social emotional learning (SEL), investing more time, energy and expense into these programs. Accompanying this stepping up is a greater attention to evaluating what’s working and for whom by collecting evidence and assessing needs, opportunities and impact.
It is excellent to see the effort and attention being dedicated to this subject. We now know that social and emotional skills–which overlap with what many call character strengths, and others label noncognitive attributes–are as or more important than intellectual ability and cognitive aptitude for student and adult success in school, college, careers and life.
The Why It Is Imperative to Assess Social Emotional Learning Infographic visualizes facts and figures on the status of SEL in schools today, from the views of educators to the economic outcomes measured thus far. You can also download a new report on student assessment here.
