Teachers can use the Social-Emotional Skills Survey (SESS) to gain valuable insight into the whole student. The survey measures global social-emotional competencies as well as eight subdomains. This is a student-facing survey for students in grades 4-12.

Once a student completes the SE Survey, teachers can view the results anywhere the Student Details screen is accessed.

For this article, we will be on the Individualized Learning page.


Viewing Results

1. Once on the Individualized Learning page, use the filters at the top to see your students.

2. Next, click either Test Data or Active ILP to view the Student Detail Screen.

3. Click the SE Survey Menu option on the left.

4. Hover over the Global Social-Emotional Skills Score to view when the student completed the most recent survey and how many attempts they have remaining for that testing window.


Reading and Interpreting Results

On the SE Survey page, teachers will see the student’s overall score and a breakdown of their score for each skill category.

In the survey, students answer each question, based on ease or difficulty. Each answer choice will be given a value of 10 (very difficult), 20 (difficult), 30 (easy), or 40 (very easy).

Teachers will not see the individual student answers, however, they will see an overall average for each SE Skill category. Below are the score ranges for each level:

  • 10-19 - Very Difficult (Red)

  • 20-29 - Difficult (Yellow)

  • 30-39 - Easy (Green)

  • 40 - Very Easy (Blue)

Let’s take a look at this student:

Globally, they scored an average of 25 (Difficult) across all questions (this is not an average of each of the category averages, but rather, an average across all 40 questions).

Below their Global score, we can see their average for each category. In several categories their average score was difficult. We can see that Self-Management: Emotion Regulation is something that is very difficult for them and Self-Management: Goal Management is something that feels easy for them.

The survey provides a quantitative score or result, which is used to compare individual students or groups of students to each other. The results of these surveys are used to help students develop SMART goals that support their personal and academic development.
