How do you know your SEL strategies are making a meaningful impact? In evidence-based implementation, measures guide implementation because, “You get what you measure, so measure what matters.” Six Seconds complete assessment systems provide meaningful data with fully-developed tools across the age span (our youth assessment is not a “cut down” adult tool, and there is a consistent model in both). How does it work? See this in-depth case study from the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology.
Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence-Youth Version (SEI-YV) is normed, validated online assessment of emotional intelligence and five key outcomes for life success (achievement, health, efficacy, relationships, satisfaction). There are numerous reports from 1-page summaries to in-depth counseling tools as well as group reports. Ages 7+
SEI-perspective Youth Version
For younger children or those with unique abilities, the SEI-pYV allows an adult (eg teacher, parent) to score a child from the adult’s perspective. Numerous reports as above. Ages: Any
Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence Assessment
SEI is one of the world’s best emotional intelligence tests; it offers simplicity, clarity, depth, and a path for action.

Education Vital Signs
Effective SEL implementation shapes the climate, or context, for learning. Belonging psychological safety are key ingredients that support or inhibit educational success. To make these intangible drivers visible, Education Vital Signs (EVS) is a normed, validated and customizable school climate assessment. Ages: All
Six Seconds also published OVS, Organization Vital Signs, for measuring workplace climate – which may be more suitable for large institutions or agencies. Ages: Adult
