Emotional Literacy

A standardised assessment measuring pupils' emotional literacy and providing ideas for intervention.

Emotional Literacy: Assessment and Intervention identifies the status of pupils’ emotional literacy and provides follow-up activities for intervention where necessary. Emotional Literacy: Assessment and Intervention Primarycovers ages 7 to 11 years and Emotional Literacy: Assessment and Intervention Secondary covers ages 11 to 16 years. The assessment covers five key areas of emotional literacy addressed in the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) curriculum including:

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-regulation
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social skills.

Optional teacher, pupil, and parent questionnaires are included. The measures help to address the social, emotional and behavioural issues that are related to a pupil’s emotional literacy.

An interactive CD-ROM, with full audio support and switch accessibility accompanies this assessment. This means that the checklists can be
accessed by all those who may find paper-based assessments problematic, as well as supporting those with additional educational
needs. The production of simple, clear printable score profiles will prove invaluable for the busy teacher. Each worksheet can be photocopied and reused, providing great value for money.
