Define SEL Metrics

The process of selecting what will be measured to assess the progress or effectiveness of SEL initiatives. Metrics may be direct evidence of SEL gains or quality implementation (e.g. student SEL competency assessments, data from walkthrough rubrics, staff interviews or self-assessments) or indirect factors that may provide relevant information about the impact of SEL (e.g. GPA, chronic absenteeism, disciplinary rates, graduation rates).
