A Study To Identify and Measure Desirable Student Social Outcomes.
Fort McMurray School District 2833 (Alberta).
This report outlines the work of the Fort McMurray School District in Alberta, Canada, to develop a set of indicators of and standards applicable to students' social skills, behaviors, and attitudes. The indicators and standards are intended to be used to assess the quality of a selected portion of the district's education program and delivery. The report describes the development of an expanded model of social competence, the use of standardized instruments, and the development of a three-level approach to measuring and reporting social skills development. At the center of this approach is the Social Skills Diagnostic Screen (SSDS), a checklist developed by the district to ascertain a student's social development. The first level of the three-part approach is reporting to parents, at report card time, the social development of their children. Should the parent or teacher require further information regarding social development, the SSDS can be used as the second level. The third level of measurement requires the administration of standardized instruments by qualified professionals. Four appendixes contain SSDS pilot test results, examples of district report cards, the SSDS itself, and an SSDS composite profile form. (MDM)
