SSIS Family of AssessmentsSSIS SEL
- The Social Skills Improvement System or SSIS™ SEL (SSIS SEL) family of assessments starts with universally screening groups of children. Each additional component allows you to conduct individual comprehensive evaluations, plan and deliver effective interventions, and monitor progress — all within one flexible, integrated system. This comprehensive family of assessments makes it easier to create a complete picture of the young person you are working with.
The SSIS™ SEL family of assessment is a comprehensive, evidenced-based, social and emotional learning system that also assesses key academic skills and integrates the assessments with an aligned, multi-tiered intervention. and provides evidence-based tools to assess and teach skills in each of the five SEL competencies: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, Responsible Decision Making. Each additional component allows you to conduct individual comprehensive evaluations, plan and deliver effective interventions, and monitor progress all within one flexible, integrated system.
The Importance of Social-Emotional Learning for Academic Development
Students with well-developed social emotional skills spend more time on task and more time helping others, resulting in a decrease in negative behavior and significant increases in learning opportunities and academic achievement. The key elements of these social emotional skills are: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. A deficit in any of these skills can lead to behavior and emotional difficulties and less involvement in academics.
Fully aligned with the CASEL framework, the SSIS™ SEL edition provides evidence-based tools to assess and teach skills in each of the five SEL domains as well as the three key academic competencies established in the original Social Skills Improvement System:
The SSIS SEL Classwide Intervention Program (CIP) is a S.A.F.E.—Sequenced, Active, Focused, and Explicit— program for students, ages 4 to 14. The PowerPoint lessons, videos, role-playing exercises, and a variety of cue cards make each lesson an engaging learning experience for all students!
SSIS™ Social-Emotional Learning Edition (SSIS SEL) is a comprehensive, evidence-based, social-emotional learning system that assesses key academic skills and integrates the different components with an aligned, multi-tiered intervention.
The Social Skills Improvement System SSIS™ Performance Screening Guide fills the need for a time-efficient, technically sound tool for classwide screening of key social, motivational, and academic skills.
The Social Skills Improvement System (SSIS) Rating Scales enable targeted assessment of individuals and small groups to help evaluate social skills, problem behaviors, and academic competence.
The Social Skills Improvement System Classwide Intervention Program provides interventions that focus on the top 10 social skills.

The Social Skills Improvement System (SSIS™) Intervention Guide helps plan and implement remediation strategies directly tied to student social skill problems identified by the SSIS Rating Scales.
SSIS SEL Edition Screening/Progress Monitoring Scales
This brief (30 to 45 minutes), class-based, criterion referenced rating scale can be used to assess students' strengths and improvement areas across five SEL and three academic competencies. Completed by teachers, this assessment can be used to screen an entire class or school of students, then used to monitor the effects of CASEL-aligned interventions.
These resources support the SISS SEL Edition to provide a comprehensive picture of the whole child.
