EEF publishes database of measurements for essential skills and non-academic outcomes
Social and emotional skills are linked to success both academically and in life; the Education Endowment Foundation commissioned the University of Manchester to review the range of measures currently available in this area.
There is considerable debate about how to measure these skills, and a wide range of measures is available. This can be confusing for schools and other settings, trying to determine which measure is most appropriate for them. To support schools with this, the EEF has produced a database and other materials illustrating the effectiveness of the various measures. These come under the umbrella term 'SPECTRUM' (social, psychological, emotional, concepts of self and resilience: understanding and measurement).
