NCASE Resource Library
The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) collaborated with more than 40 partners to develop this SEL Roadmap designed to support teams in planning for the transition back to schools.
CASEL's District Resource Center is developed in partnership with school districts that are part of the Collaborating Districts Initiative, which has recently been enhanced. This tool kit is also intended to provide resources to out-of-school programs.
This resource provides a review of tools that programs can use to measure youth outcomes. The outcomes selected include communication, relationships and collaboration, critical thinking and decision-making, initiative, and self-direction. The review includes cost and evidence of reliability and validity.
This executive summary reports on a three-year study of Youth Program Quality Improvement in 87 sites in four states that included quality assessment, improvement plans, coaching by managers, and staff training. The approach led to higher quality instructions across programs even where there was manager turnover, low staff education, and varying adult-youth ratios.
This guide compares purpose, structure, content, and technical properties of assessment tools for out-of-school time programs.
