Alignment empowers educators to foster and assess students’ social and emotional development

apperson-assessmentAs part of its commitment to educating the whole child through academic and social-emotional learning (SEL), Apperson Inc., a K-12 provider of assessment tools and software solutions that are designed to assess performance and measure success in students while streamlining workflow for educators, has partnered with Open Circle, a provider of evidence-based curriculum and professional development for social and emotional learning in elementary schools.

Through the partnership, Apperson will align the skills from its Evo Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) assessment with skills and practices from the Open Circle Curriculum.

This will allow educators to measure and track outcomes from implementing Open Circle programming, as well as refine and target Open Circle instruction based on identified student strengths and needs.
