Focusing on a child's strengths, the SEARS may be used with children and adolescents who exhibit a variety of clinical problems or who are at high risk for developing such problems.
Features and Benefits
- Includes separate assessment forms for children (ages 8 to 12 years or Grades 3 to 6) and for adolescents (ages 13 to 18 years or Grades 7 to 12), as well as teacher report forms and parent report forms. The forms may be used for any combination of student, parent and teacher assessment.
- All forms measure common constructs (e.g., self-regulation, responsibility, social competence, empathy), but also include items designed to capture the unique perspective of the rater. Items are phrased as desirable positive characteristics.
- Separate short forms (12 items each) are also available. SEARS-SF forms best reflect the global construct of social resiliency measured by the full-length rating forms and require very little time to administer. They are practical for repeated assessment (i.e., progress monitoring) or class or school-wide screening of students.
Scoring Program Available
The SEARS-SP offers Score Reports, Progress Monitoring Reports, and Integrated Score Reports and may be used with both long and short forms. Compatiable with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10.
