Evo SEL 2.0, which hits the market in mid-July, 2016, will feature a fresh new look, streamlined functions and improved efficiency, making it faster and easier to screen students for social and emotional competencies.
“We know how important it is for educators to provide programs that address the whole child. We also understand the time demands that educators and administrators face,” said Bill Apperson, chairman of the board of Apperson. “They want quality products that are quick, effective, and easy to use. That’s why we have spent the past year collecting feedback from our Evo SEL users in order to offer the best possible SEL assessment tools. Evo SEL 2.0 includes significant enhancements that we think users will love.”
Apperson launched Evo Social & Emotional in 2015 in response to a growing body of research showing that addressing students’ social and emotional needs has a positive impact on their academic performance and helps lay the foundation for lifelong success.
Evo SEL 2.0 measures the SEL competencies of students in kindergarten through 8th grade. It is based on the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA), a standardized, strengths-based measure of SEL competencies such as self-awareness, self-management, relationship skills and decision-making. Apperson provides an online platform for administering the DESSA and DESSA Mini, universal screeners that quickly identify students’ SEL competencies, and it provides resources to address SEL gaps. Evo SEL 2.0 also provides data to help SEL program administrators measure the impact of their programs.
Apperson’s K-16 assessment solutions help educators develop a 360° panorama of the student and his or her strengths, as well as areas of opportunities, that can inform curriculum decision-making and create positive learning outcomes. Whether it’s DataLink scanners, or the Evo assessment platform, Apperson’s products support and encourage a holistic learning and development approach by helping educators turn assessment data into actionable information.
