Measure Social and Emotional Learning at Your School FREE

This year, eight schools will have the opportunity to join the growing number of educational institutions that have discovered Social and Emotional learning (SEL) matters.

Your school or district is invited to apply for the first ever ACT Social and Emotional Journey Program. Selected schools will receive 500 free ACT® Tessera® assessments and have the opportunity to share their feedback regarding the experience.

Applications must be submitted by February 8, 2019 and should only include those that have not administered ACT Tessera previously.

Tessera is a comprehensive next-generation assessment system designed to measure Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills. It provides assessments to help K-12 educators’ measure and evaluate 6-12th grade students’ SEL skills, determine their strengths and areas for improvement, and identify interventions to help them succeed.
