Program Review Rating Scales: Introduction and Overview.
"Safe and Sound: An Educational Leader's Guide to Evidence-Based Social and Emotional Learning Programs" introduces the concepts of SEL and comprehensive approaches to SEL, describes the value of such programming to the essential academic mission of schools, and suggests how to approach implementing such programming. This packet contains the rating scales CASEL program evaluators used when assessing programs on 10 "best SEL practice" criteria. The scales are presented in the order they appear in the "Program Ratings Table" in the Safe and Sound guide. Each rating criterion includes a rationale for why the criterion is important, definitions of evaluated variables, a description of each level of the scale, and examples of program practices that correspond to each of the levels.
