Social-Emotional and Behavior Universal Screening and Progress Monitoring

Social-emotional skills and behavior have a strong influence over academic achievement. Therefore, it’s important to assess both academic and social-emotional behavior (SEB) skills in students. The two most important SEB assessments are universal screening and progress monitoring. Deep-dive into the purpose of these assessments and choosing the most reliable measures for both.

This whitepaper covers:

  • The purpose of each assessment within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) that addresses SEB functioning
  • The various types of screening and progress monitoring tools
  • Key characteristics of the most reliable assessments for universal screening and progress monitoring of SEB functioning
