Are You Ready to Assess Social and Emotional Learning and Development?

How can you assess conditions for learning and development, as well as social and emotional competencies? The Stop, Think, Act: Ready to Assess toolkit helps educators, practitioners, and policymakers decide if and when they are ready to take those steps.

Helping youth develop social and emotional competencies can put them on the road to success—not only in school but also in their lives. It is crucial to have strong conditions for learning to enable social and emotional learning (SEL) and development.

The second edition of Stop, Think, Act: Ready to Assess:

Highlights the importance of implementation readiness and the conditions that foster SEL and development;
Includes assessments of learning conditions in and out of school; and
Updates the list of available social and emotional competency assessments.
