The self-assessment tool was created by the Center on Great Teachers and Leaders. It is designed to help educators reflect upon current teaching practices that impact student social-emotional learning (SEL), and their own SEL competencies to implement those teaching practices.
Essentially, the aims of this tool are as follows:
- Enable teachers to reflect and self-assess on SEL as an integral part of high-quality teaching and learning.
- Provide a broad measure of the teacher's ability to promote student SEL through instructional practices.
- Provide a mechanism for teachers to reflect on their own SEL competencies and to consider what impact their capabilities have on the implementation of practices that support SEL.
- To provide teachers with self-reflective feedback that can be used as part of their professional development plans or educator evaluations.
