Social-Emotional Behavior (SEB) Innovations
Should you focus on supporting students’ social-emotional skills or their behavior? The most effective approach, SEB, lies somewhere in the middle. Even better when you can pair SEB and academic data to provide interventions that nurture the whole child. FastBridge is the first and only K-12 assessment system to include SEB screening and progress monitoring tools as part of one simplified assessment solution.
Whitepaper: How to Leverage Social-Emotional and Behavior (SEB) Assessment
to Improve Academic Outcomes
To plan instruction and interventions that address the whole child, districts and schools will need to screen for learning loss and assess SEB skills. Deep-dive into integrating SEB assessments into your Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) to fully support students.
This whitepaper covers:
- The role of assessment within an MTSS that addresses SEB functioning
- Various types of universal screening and progress monitoring tools
- Key characteristics of the most reliable assessments of SEB functioning
All FastBridge SEB assessments are founded upon multiple studies suggestive of their psychometric defensibility.
- The Social, Academic, and Emotional Behavior Risk Screener (SAEBRS) is supported by several peer-reviewed studies indicative of its diagnostic accuracy in detecting student risk for social-emotional and behavioral concerns.
- The Direct Behavior Rating (DBR) tool is founded upon strong peer-reviewed evidence of its sensitivity to change in student behavior in response to intervention.
Every FastBridge SEB assessment is designed to be used quickly and efficiently.
- It takes only 1-3 minutes for a teacher to rate a student using the SAEBRS or for a student to rate him or herself.
- DBR progress monitoring groups can be set up in only a few minutes and each rating takes only a few seconds.
With the FastBridge behavior suite, educators receive an integrated assessment system. Results from the SAEBRS and mySAEBRS assessments suggest the domains within which a student is experiencing concerns (i.e., Social, Academic, or Emotional). And the DBR system can used to monitor students in their documented area of risk.
The DBR progress monitoring system gives educators flexibility in determining the behaviors they would like to monitor and the dimensions of those behaviors that are of interest.
Educators can choose from a wide range of behavior targets within the domains of Social Behavior, Academic Behavior, and Emotional Behavior. Behaviors can then be rated regards to both their frequency and intensity.
