Creating Balanced Systems of Assessment to Support Equitable Opportunities to Learn and Child Well-being

IES Logo

State and local education leaders rely on systems of assessment to provide valid and timely information to monitor student outcomes and address students’ learning needs. In this second webinar of the two-part series, REL Pacific will present research on social and emotional learning and indicators of school quality to describe how holistic systems of assessment can extend beyond academic outcomes to ensure that students have equitable opportunities to learn and support whole-child development. The webinar will address the following questions: 1. What do we mean by “holistic systems of assessment,” and how can they be used to create more equitable learning experiences and improve academic and non-academic outcomes for all students? 2. What is the relationship between social and emotional learning skills and student outcomes? Why is it important for school systems to integrate social and emotional learning skills into their curriculum? 3. How can districts and schools incorporate social and emotional learning (SEL) measures within a balanced system of assessment to support SEL skill development? 4. How can SEL assessment be integrated into multi-tiered systems of support to improve students’ academic and non-academic outcomes?
