A comprehensive, evidence-based, social–emotional learning system

Students with well-developed social–emotional skills spend more time on task and more time helping others, resulting in a decrease in negative behavior and a significant increase in learning and academic achievement.

While most social–emotional skills intervention systems address basic social competencies, the SSIS SEL Edition provides educators and other users with a comprehensive social–emotional skills learning solution.

Fully aligned with the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) framework, the SSIS SEL Edition provides evidence-based tools to assess and teach skills in each of the five SEL competencies:

  1. Self-Awareness
  2. Self-Management
  3. Social Awareness
  4. Relationship Skills
  5. Responsible Decision Making

Features & Benefits

Updated—The SSIS SEL Edition aligns with the CASEL framework and addresses core social–emotional skills.

Comprehensive—The SSIS SEL Edition encompasses the full assessment cycle, and is the only SEL measure to also assess key academic skill areas.

  • Creating Brief SEL Competency-Focused Interventions with the SSIS SEL CIP

    Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, Ph.D.

    During this webinar, Dr. Elliott will show how the CIP can be conceptualized as a set of brief (3 to 6 week) interventions that focus on an SEL competency area, such as Social Awareness Skills (3 Skill Units), Self-Management Skills (6 skill units), Relationship Skills (6 skill units) or Responsible Decision Making Skills (5 skill units). Dr. Elliott will also show how the Screening/Progress Monitoring System could be abbreviated as well to only assess the area of interest or to assess a personalized subset of SEL competencies and academic skill. These brief SSIS SEL competency-focused interventions can facilitate Tier 2, Tier 3, and Special Education services for students with identified skill performance or acquisition deficits and need more intensive support to improve their social emotion skills.

    Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with previous comprehensive SSIS SEL edition webinars on the new SEL assessments and Classwide Intervention Program (CIP) prior to this webinar on Brief Interventions.
