The DESSA Comprehensive SEL System is an online software platform. This platform allows educators to measure, strengthen, and support social-emotional competencies in grades K-5. The CASEL-aligned DESSA System includes evidence-based social-emotional learning assessments, a universal screener that can be administered in less than a minute, and foundational practices and growth strategies to strengthen social and emotional competencies. Actionable data and reporting helps our educators to measure the impact of their social emotional learning programs and social emotional learning curricula and helps educators understand students’ SEL strengths and needs.
