Overview

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 behaviour 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

Webinars

Assessing and improving social-emotional learning skills in primary school students using the SSIS-SEL Classwide Intervention Program

Psychologist Madeline Armstrong and co-authors Mike Davies (Griffith University) and Stephen Elliott (Arizona State University) discuss using the SSIS-SEL.

 


SEL Screening & Intervention Programs for Children Preschool to First-Grade

During this webinar, Dr. Elliott will cover the SSIS-SEL assessments and Classwide Intervention Program as applied to young children within the framework of the 50 states’ policies requiring preschool SEL screening and interventions. Detailed examples will be provided of how SEL screening, skill instruction, and progress reporting can be done effectively with the SSIS-SEL edition.

 

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

During this webinar, Dr. Elliott will show how the CIP can be conceptualised 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 personalised 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 emotional skills.

 

Use of the New SSIS Social-Emotional Learning Edition Classwide Intervention Program

In this session with test author Dr. Stephen Elliott, learn the description of the theory and guiding intervention model illustrated via a case illustration of an intervention unit with an entire class using the new SSIS-SEL edition. Dr. Elliott will also provide a review of related research on the effectiveness of the SSIS SEL CIP, along with tips for evaluating the effectiveness of classroom interventions by teachers.

 

Identify a Student's Strengths and Weaknesses with the new SSIS Social-Emotional Learning Edition Rating Scales

In this session with test author Dr. Stephen Elliott, learn how to use the new SSIS-SEL edition Rating Scales to identify a student's strengths and weaknesses in core social-emotional skills and those student's in needs of intervention. An overview of the SSIS-SEL Rating Scales, how to use it and coverage of technical qualities will be covered.

 

Use of the new SSIS Social-Emotional Learning Edition for Screening, Assessing, Intervention Planning, and Progress Monitoring

In this session with test author Dr. Stephen Elliott, learn how the new SSIS-SEL edition can be used as a comprehensive social and emotional skills learning solution. Fully aligned with the CASEL framework, the SSIS-SEL edition provides evidenced-based tools to assess and teach skills in each of the 5 SEL domains.
