Aperture Education’s Evo SEL (Social Emotional Learning) platform is based on the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA), a standardized, strengths-based measure of critical social and emotional skills such as personal responsibility, self-management, relationship skills and healthy decision-making.
The Evo SEL platform gives insight to student emotional competence and resiliency, and provides a framework for maximizing potential.
Central to Evo SEL are three innovative rating scales designed to screen, assess, guide intervention planning, monitor progress, and evaluate outcomes related to social-emotional competence and resilience.
Designed for parents, teachers and after-school program staff to complete, the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA), the DESSA-mini, and the DESSA-SSE (Second Step Edition) provide a comprehensive, integrated approach to support a child’s healthy social-emotional development.
