More effective problem-solving

The Branching Minds Behavior Insight Survey leverages the learning sciences to collect teachers’ observations of students’ executive functioning and social-emotional skills, differentiated by students’ grade performance level.

Pattern Matching Behavior Incidents Across Groups

Behavior incidents are also filterable and viewable across subgroups like school, grade, student, staff, incident, demographic subgroups and more.

Assessing SEL Needs with the SECA

The SECA is a free, research-based, student-facing survey that measures self-reported social and emotional competencies of students in grades 5-12, and can be administered directly through Branching Minds.. The SECA assesses 8 social-emotional skills and provides an overall SEL global score. Questions are available in English and Spanish. Once completed, students’ scores appear immediately on their Student Overview page. Educators can use that data to identify students who need support and find programs, strategies, and resources aligned to their specific SEL needs. For more information on the SECA, click here.

Leveraging SEL Screeners for Tiering

Branching Minds can ingest SEL screener data, or use SECA data, to determine tier placement for students based on school-determined performance cut scores. Educators can then review tier level reports which provide the percent and number of students in each tier broken down by school, grade, gender, race, ethnicity, English proficiency, and FRL status; as well as tier movement reports to understand if students are moving up or down in tier between two time periods.
