Learn how Woodridge School District 68 (Ill.) measures and promotes growth in students' social-emotional learning. Teachers and school leaders use Panorama's interactive reports and tools to support students in developing SEL skills to thrive in high school, college, careers, and beyond.
A growing body of evidence suggests that social-emotional skills correlate with important student outcomes, including academic achievement, employment, and income later in life. Measuring student social-emotional learning provides a critical view into students' self-perception of their capacity to grow and develop and the extent to which they feel supported, valued, and engaged at school.
Our SEL measures have been used in thousands of schools across the US and are regularly checked for validity and reliability. Many schools and districts have found positive correlations between these measures and student outcomes, such as GPA, test scores, and attendance.
Many of our SEL measures were created by Dr. Hunter Gehlbach, Associate Professor at the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, UCSB, and Panorama's Director of Research, along with his research team at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Some measures have been adapted from work developed in partnership with the CORE Districts, Transforming Education, and their research partners. We’re grateful for the support and contributions of our partners.
