My role is:

MEASUREMENT

Assess and reflect to become more attuned and responsive educators

Well-Being Index

Assess and reflect to attune and respond to each of your students

Each student has unique strengths and needs that are dynamic and guide how they engage and learn. Educators informally try to assess how students are doing with quick chats in the hall and through the observation of behavior, however this approach risks looking for problems and many students can be overlooked. The Well-Being Index is a tool designed to help educators collect holistic data – physical, social, psychological, emotional well-being – systematically, directly, quickly, and in real time. This approach increases student voice, empowers students to own their stories, and invites them into the problem-solving process.
