Released on September 2019, the Student Social and Emotional Competence Assessment: The Current State of the Field and a Vision for Its Future is a 53-page report describing the evolving field of social and emotional learning (SEL) assessments.

This report is the result of a three-year collaboration of the Working Assessment group managed by CASEL, a group of between leading education researchers, practitioners and leaders from the RAND Corporation, Harvard University, the California CORE Districts, Transforming Education, xSEL Labs, and several universities, nonprofit organizations, and school districts across the US.

Key findings are that social and emotional competencies can be taught and measured, that goals and tools for assessment need to be carefully selected, and that quality assessments need to be part of a comprehensive approach to rethink education. Steps for continued improvements are also provided in the report.
