With the new requirement of a non-academic fifth indicator in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and research supporting the importance of non-cognitive skills for students’ long term outcomes, educational organizations are wondering how to measure and effectively and accurately communicate about these skills. This session will share the work of three SDP fellow projects.

Karyn Lewis, Data Fellow at Education Northwest, created a guide to the uses of social emotional learning (SEL) data, including what it can and cannot tell the education practice and policy communities. Dawn Oliver, South Area School Office Director at Houston Independent School District, evaluated linked learning (career pathways) models, including implementation and data collection successes and challenges. Le Shaun Quander-Mosely, Director for Assessment and Research at the Archdiocese of Washington Catholic Schools Office, defined a Catholic Identity (CI) construct that can be used to identify indicators of Catholic culture in Catholic schools.
