The Social Emotional Assets and Resilience Scales (SEARS) measures social-emotional competencies of children from 5-18 years of age with a multiple-perspective approach. It can be used to assess positive social-emotional attributes of children and adolescents, and is closely tied to the positive psychology movement.
It includes separate assessment forms for children (ages 8 to 12 years or Grades 3 to 6) and for adolescents (ages 13 to 18 years or Grades 7 to 12), as well as teacher report forms and parent report forms. The forms may be used for any combination of student, parent, and teacher assessment.
Separate short forms (12 items each) are also available, which are practical for repeated assessment (i.e., progress monitoring) or class- or school-wide screening of students.
The SEARS can be administered and scored online, via PARiConnect. PARiConnect assesses your clients when and where you need-you can administer assessments online and generate score and Interpretive Reports instantly (assessment dependant).
The Online SEARS Score Reports provide scores and profiles based on response data from an i-Admin or a paper-and-pencil assessment (where the examiner key enters the responses). Online SEARS Score Reports can be used to score the Child, Adolescent, Parent or Teacher form.
