Measuring Socio-Emotional Learning Through YouthTruth Surveys

YouthTruth ascribes to the framework developed over the last 25 years at the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), which organizes social-emotional learning (SEL) into the “big five”: Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision-Making. These domains provide a research-based framework for instruction, school-improvement efforts, and for assessing individual students’ SEL aptitude.

Dr. Brennon Sapp, Principal of Scott High School in Taylor Mill, KY, discusses how he used student feedback from the YouthTruth Student Survey to build relationships and shift the culture of his school.
