Assessdo Uses Effective Evidence-Based Tools & Practices

 Assessdo’s assessment tools are a replication of a nationally normed study that is validated with the highest levels of reliability.  Our proposed computer adaptive assessment platform is nationally normed and validated with the highest levels of validity and reliability, and provides a measure of growth over time.

CASEL Framework

Our measurement tools are based on the CASEL 5 crucial domains (Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Decision Making, Social-Awareness, and Relationship Skills).  

Formative Measurements

The results from our formative measurements provide deeper, more interpretive solutions to the five domains of SEL as required by school districts.

Industry Standard Tools

The Assessdo SEL platform uses industry standard psychometric tools to provide data that is reliable and valid according to test measures.

Qualitative Assessing

Our assessment module’s validity measures student SEL emotions for formative purposes using quantitative data through qualitative assessing.

Quantitative Approach

Assessdo uses a quantitative approach designed to convert student emotions by encouraging students to describe their emotions in such a way that the system can instantaneously gauge without a loss of representation in the quality of data, a student’s thoughts and emotions.

Geneva Appraisal Method

Many of the Assessdo tools are aligned with the Geneva Appraisal Method which is one of the prominent methods in capturing Emotion. The Geneva Appraisal Method also lends findings related to the social context of the emotional experience and the event, as well as questions on intensity, duration, and regulation of the emotional experience.
