We’ve teamed up with Aperture Education to offer the DESSA System, an assessment and intervention system featuring the nationally recognized Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) and DESSA-mini. In addition, Kickboard users can now integrate social emotional learning assessment through the new DESSA SEL Inventory, a curated set of 40 behaviors related to the DESSA’s eight evidence-based social-emotional competencies.
Kickboard’s real-time behavior tracking platform is an essential component to social emotional learning monitoring and assessment. Educators can quickly and easily record students’ demonstration of key SEL skills and Kickboard’s robust reporting platform provides flexibility for analyzing and reporting on SEL skill and behavior data.
Use Kickboard to assess student development with your social emotional learning curriculum. Which SEL skills are students frequently demonstrating? Which SEL curriculum areas might you need to revisit? Kickboard complements any SEL program by enabling teachers to gather and analyze data on student development of SEL curriculum skills.
