Social Emotional Learning: 

Demonstrate Growth with SEL Assessment

As with academic learning, evaluating student progress in building SEL skills matters. Measure CASEL-aligned SEL skills, plus school climate, and provide clear feedback to students, educators, and parents with this proven assessment.

How Does Mosaic by ACT SEL Assessment Measure Social Emotional Learning Skills?

Advanced assessment methodology goes beyond traditional self-reporting to yield more reliable, valid results. Our online assessment tool integrates three different methodologies:

Self-Report Rating

Students rate the extent to which they agree with several statements.

Situational Judgment

Students are presented with scenarios and five possible responses to each. 

Forced-Choice Items

Students select statements that are “most like them” and “least like them.”

Accurate and Valid Results

Coupled with this reliable measurement, our summary level and detail reports provide you with information about students’ social emotional skills and can also be used as a tool for facilitating a conversation with a student, parent, or educator about those SEL skills.

Personalized feedback reports. In addition to administrator and educator reports, each student receives a personal proficiency and growth report, empowering them to set goals, identify strategies for improvement, and monitor their progress. Detailed student reports can also be viewed by teachers and parents.

User-friendly format. All results data are reported in a clear, easy-to-understand format.

Actionable insights. Reporting includes recommended resources and strategies to address areas the assessment has identified as requiring increased focus.

Implementation guidance. To assist school-leaders and teachers on best practice in translating data into action, our SEL reports are accompanied by a user's guide, implementation strategy guides, and links to recorded webinars.
